I notice that test_re is failing with a recursion depth limit error on Mac
OS X, but only when run under regrtest.py.  Running plain works:

    % ./python.exe ../Lib/test/test_re.py
    Running re_tests test suite

Running from regrtest fails:

    % ./python.exe ../Lib/test/regrtest.py test_re
    test test_re produced unexpected output:
    *** line 2 of expected output missing:
    - maximum recursion limit exceeded
    1 test failed:

Cranking the stack limit up as high as 32MB didn't help, though I don't
suppose it should have, given the error message.  Bumping the recursion
limit up as high as 20000 didn't help either.

Anybody else seen this?
