FYI, I just changed SF so that bugs with Category "Regular Expressions" are auto-assigned to Gustavo (they were being auto-assigned to Fredrik, which doesn't appear to do much good anymore).
I'm really ashamed. The SRE bug #1072259, reported in 2004-11-24, and fixed a few minutes ago, got into 2.4 final. The only reason it wasn't fixed on time for 2.4 is because I wasn't aware about it. :-(
Unfortunately, that particular bug was in a wrong Category, so the new auto-assign wouldn't have helped here anyway.
