but at least now I'm starting to feel a little confident that it serves no purpose. (I'll still probably leave it there ... because I'm feeling even more confident that it doesn't do any harm :-)

Its probably a reflex :) I know when I write regex I make more mistakes from greedines than from non-greediness, so I tend to write +? *? to be on the safe side

I know I'm not alone in getting bit by it , it is a frequent cause/solution from newbies
