Thanks for the bug report Seo!  I've filed bug #7531 for this (http://www.codeplex.com/IronPython/WorkItem/View.aspx?WorkItemId=7531).

Subject: [IronPython] re.sub at the start of the string

import re
print re.sub('^', 'x', 'abc')

CPython prints xabc, IronPython prints just abc.

For FePy users: you can use FEPY_OPTIONS=regex to avoid this bug for
the time being.
