The biggest change in regexp support in the introduction of proper
unicode support, but that was before 9.1.

The problem report claims that the issue does not occur on 9.1, but yet:

git diff REL9_1_STABLE master  -- ./src/backend/utils/adt/regexp.c

is utterly trivial; a copyright date line change, and 1609797c which
just tweaks the includes. 9.0 has a much bigger diff.

So I'd like to confirm that this issue doesn't affect 9.1. I can
reproduce the issue againts 9.2. I don't have 9.1 or older lying around
to test against right this second.

Sandro, can you please provide the output of "SELECT version()" from a
PostgreSQL version that is not slow with this query?

(BTW, I'm highly amused by how the development style has changed around
here. From "git blame", this is from 1997:

"I haven't actually measured the speed improvement, but it `looks' a lot
quicker visually when watching regression test output."
