Interesting, I didn't know that. Please pass on my condolences :)

This is a good description of the problem; a proper changelog should
really say what the patch *does* about the problem too. Especially
since...

The meaning of this change doesn't just jump off the screen, even for
folks who are accustomed to reading regexes. It would be nice to explain
what is actually being changed and what the expected new behavior is. It
appears to be consuming any normal text/white space prior to the optional
"*". Are you sure it doesn't overshoot and consume too much if the *
isn't there?

Thanks,
