And, it occurs to me overnight, there may be another "solution". Do you
actually use the values of the captured substrings? If all you are
interested in is whether or not the pattern matches, all you need to do
is change the test of the return code from > 0 to >= 0 and you are done.
Alternatively, set the PCRE_NO_AUTO_CAPTURE option on pcre_compile() and
it won't capture anything.
