New submission from Serhiy Storchaka:

In _sre.c pointers can point out of boundaries of array. This is an undefined behavior and is one of causes of a bug in issue17998 (end-ptr can be negative). The proposed patch change code to check if pointers will point out of boundaries before their changing.
