+ |                              DESCRIPTION                                   |
+ Using regexp Version 1.2 on either Solaris 2.6 or WinNT 4 and versions 1.1.7 
+ and 1.3 of Sun's JRE.
+ 
+ Any pattern with a leading "\b" boundary has that boundary ignored.
+ 
+ For example, If I make an RE object from the String "\\bfly\\b" (==> /\bfly\b/ )
+ that object will correctly fail to match the string "flying" but
+ will incorrectly match the string "housefly"
