I read though this entire post, and I'm not quite sure what you're
asking. May I suggest that you need to break this down into smaller
pieces and find a minimal test case.
I'm guessing this is a problem with the regex processing. To prove
that, strip away everything else and verify that part in isolation.
Compile your regex, and match it against a string that you expect it to
match. Then, examine the groups returned by the match object. If
they're not what you expect, then re-post your question, with just this
minimal test code.
