Regex library crash

Reported by: philippeb8@… Owned by: johnmaddock
Milestone: To Be Determined Component: regex
Version: Boost 1.34.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:


On Cygwin if we link to the gcc version of the regex library, regex_match will cause a crash. The following code: #include <iostream> #include <vector> #include <string> #include <boost/regex.hpp>

using namespace std;

int main(int argc, char argv) {

boost::regex re; boost::cmatch matches;

boost::regex_match("abc", matches, re.assign("(a)bc"));

return 0;


Compiled with: g++ regex.cpp -lboost_regex-gcc-mt

Will crash with the following backtrace: #0 0x6961deb0 in cygboost_regex-gcc-mt-1_33_1!_ZNK5boost9re_detail31cpp_regex_traits_implementationIcE20lookup_classname_impEPKcS4_ ()

I tried this with the latest Cygwin packages (Boost-1.43) and it works just fine for me.
