This is perl, version 5.004_04 built for i386-bsdos

I just tried this on another machine (also perl 5.004_04) and didn't
run out of memory, but rather had the same result that you did.

There could be something querky with port for i386-bsdos.

I have:

Regardless, the MSGSEP is not appropriate for the file you gave.

I agree, but did you happen to catch why only a single match was made.

The regex does not match the messsage separators used.  Ie.  The real
message separators do not have two spaces in sequence.  Since the regex
does, it will never match the messsage separators.  The one it does
match (there are 2 spaces in sequence), is actually an included message
of a message.
