            Bug ID: 61996
           Summary: pywikibot.replaceExcept() may hang or cause an
                    infinite loop
           Product: Pywikibot
           Version: compat (1.0)
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: General
          Assignee: pywikipedia-b...@lists.wikimedia.org

In some circumstances pywikibot.replaceExcept() may hang or have an infinite
loop. Neigher keyboard interrupt nor any other event works anymore an the
workstation must be restarted. Maybe this is caused by a malformed undetected
regex. On the otherhand any interrupt should be possible to kill the task.

I found this on compat, maybe it is also the same problem in core.
