This is a bug report for perl from merijnb@brugman.iloquent.nl,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.35 running under perl v5.8.8.

Hello,

The following program causes a segfault for Perl:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w
use strict;
use Text::ParseWords;
# Generates a line '"Section One","01234567890123456789..."'
my $line = '"Section One","' . '0123456789' x ($ARGV[0] || 3200) . '"';
print "Length line: " . length($line) . "\n";
my @fields = &quotewords(',', 0, $line) or die "Cannot quotewords: $!\n";
print map {"$_\n"} @fields;

If the string gets too long the regexp in parse_line blows the stack. Since
this is a core module I think it would be good to optimize the regexp.

[Please do not change anything below this line]
