The following code produces segmentation fault with boost 1.61.0, icu 57.1:

#include <boost/regex/icu.hpp>
#include <iostream>

int main()
	auto rx = boost::make_u32regex("\\", boost::regex::basic);
	std::cout << boost::u32regex_search("qwerty", rx) << std::endl;


Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
