... \G having to refer back to the last match.

IIUC, the \G anchor refers to the pos of the string against which the match is being attempted (the pos from a previous, unsuccessful match attempt having been preserved by the /c modifier), and so should should be pretty cheap/quick. Is your experience otherwise?

    No, but it's a regression, and seems to be narrowed down somewhere in:
    $text =~ /\G \s* ^ \s* begfoo \s+ (\S+?) \s* \( \s* (.*?) \s +* \) \s* ;/gcmsx
    And it sounds like replacing .*? with [^;]*? was tried.
