Vim's automatic selection of regexp engine leads to segfaults. For example,

`echo matchlist(text,'.*')`

.. where `text` is any string longer than 99997 characters is insta-death on my x86_64 machine with &regexpengine==0. The size might seem ridiculous, but some plug-ins will do that.

This applies to all vim packages in Arch. The issue is known [1][2] and has been fixed, so this is a request to bump the patch level to 7.4.527 or later.
