Problem with bash-3.2 patch

In the latest development branch (SVN-20070314), the
bash-3.2-fixes-2.patch creates a problem in bash, as regular
expression matches in conditionals don't work anymore :

[[ $test =~ $regexpr ]]

always returns 1 in $?.
Tested without the patch, all works fine. I saw a 'protection' fix in
the patch (look for COND_REGEX) ; I guess the problem is there. I
don't have any fix for the patch for now, and not sure to be able to
do so.
