Don't hold me to this, but I remember seeing that there was a problem with
regular expressions in 5.004 (something to do with patterns like
/(...)foo\1/i and not being case insensitive on the backward reference)
I also remember seeing a patch for 5.004 that fixed this problem.
Although from what I've seen you should upgrade to 1.94.3 anyway....
