Unabortable builds due to catastrophic backtracking regular expression

      Description

      If the user enters a regular expression which results in catastrophic backtracking, the regular expression will run "forever" and the user will not be able to abort the build.

      The attached config.xml demonstrates the issue.

      The solution is to use an interruptible character sequence.
