So that overrides the greediness precept? The perlre document isn't clear on this, so I wasn't sure which behavior was considered correct.

I no longer have a 5.12.4 handy either: I discovered this issue after upgrading perl and finding my code was no longer working as it had before. Was this a bug in a 5.12.4? I can't find anything in the perl*delta docs that lead me to believe this is an intentional behavior change.
