Hi logan

> Yes, the fact that the error is for a failed pattern match and not a failed eq is doubly confusing

I don't think that 5.8.8 had different error msgs. (you could check)

Anyway is it possible that someone overloaded eq with a routine doing a regex-match?

Is the value in question maybe an object? What does ref return?
