I have tried this and the error persists, so it's not a filesystem
case sensitivity issue.
I then went to change the regexp to the alternate form (^|/)core(\.
[0-9]+)?$ and the error went away. I guess in the end it proves to be
a bug in the OS X regex implementation. Most likely it doesn't like
empty alternative for the | operator, even though it is valid.
