Using 4.0.0 final on Eclipse 3.1 I get a
StackOverflowError with GenericIllegalRegexp with
ignoreComments set.

To replicate:
1. Create and use a copy of sun_checks.xml
2. Change the GenericIllegalRegexp which checks for
spaces at the end of lines to ignore comments
3. Add a comment with a trailing space to any file

This is a serious problem because the Eclipse formatter
puts a single space after the asterisk in empty lines
within Javadoc, so it will not be unusual for users to
ignore comments.
