./php-727 -r '$foo = "1HnyFwSJDjWFexD7oRr4HGTFwD8N6NsrfX"; $pattern = "[((?:(?(?<!):a?)+a?)+|\1)\8\C]u"; preg_match($pattern, $foo, $matches, PREG_OFFSET_CAPTURE, 3); print_r($matches);'

Increasing ulimit -s from the default of 8192 to 156275 seems to make this go away on a consistent basis. 

Expected result:
No crash.

Actual result:
==28465==ERROR: AddressSanitizer: stack-overflow on address 0x7ffc87ca4ff8 (pc 0x0000006032f1 bp 0x7ffc87ca53c0 sp 0x7ffc87ca4fe0 T0)
