           Summary: Stack overflow in libpcre - segmentation fault
           Product: PCRE

I have a small test program that causes a stack overflow and a segmentation

The test program causes a recursion problem in the Match() function in the
pcre_exec code.
If I --disable-stack-for-recursion the program runs

#include <pcre.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <stdio.h>

#define SAVESIZE 50

#define SUBJECT_SIZE 18000

int main (int argc, char **argv)

    char subject[SUBJECT_SIZE+1];

    const char* pattern="(A)*";

    const char* error;
    int offset;

    real_pcre *re = pcre_compile(pattern, 0, &error, &offset, NULL);

    int offsets[SAVESIZE];

    int rc = pcre_exec(re,NULL,subject,SUBJECT_SIZE,0,0,offsets,SAVESIZE);
