I am unable to compile regular expressions that use quantification in combination with grouping. A simple example is:

(?>abc){5}

which gives runtime exception 'Exception in thread "main" jregex.PatternSyntaxException: can't iterate this type: 43'.

This compiles fine using the java.util.regex Pattern class.
