When running Saxon 8.7 under JDK 1.4, unwanted
diagnostic trace messages are produced when regular
expressions are compiled (that is, when calls on
matches() replace() tokenize() or xsl:analyze-string
are processed). The messages may occur either at
compile time or at run-time.

Source fix: comment out the "System.err.println" calls
at lines 459 and 467 of module
net.sf.saxon.regex.JDK14RegexTranslator.

The problem does not occur with JDK 1.5.
