-expect: does "access-list 1 permit x.x.x.101\r\naccess-li" (spawn_id exp6) match regular expression "\u0008+"? (No Gate, RE only) gate=yes re=no

its occuring inside tcl or expect.  i suspect its the same problem that i
had with hpuifilter when some linux users started upgrading.  I dont know
what the cause is, but i'd look for old versions of libc and internationization
libraries that tcl or expect are linked with.

hrm, there doesnt appear to be an easy way to disable it in expect.
