Bug in RE's?

I have a list of words that I need to search for in a large number of
files. I decided to put the patterns into one huge string and make an
RE out of it. However, at a certain point the RE stops working. By
this, I mean that the findall method does not return any matches for a
line that contain matches. If I recompile the RE, it works fine. the
RE always stops working in the same place and it always starts working
again in the same place. I have no idea why. Has anyone ever seen
this? If this is a bug, where would I report it?
