This output occurs because of the following setting in your
resource file:


This basically blanked out the pattern that is used for expanding
resource variables.  I leave it as an excersice for those who
know Perl on the why the blank pattern causes the above behavior
(hint, check the documentation on the `split' operator).

The ultimate fix is on the user's side since this resource affects
internal processing and is difficult, if not impossible, to auto-verify
if the setting will cause problems.  To protect against a blank setting,
the next version of MHonArc will only honor the VARREGEX resource
setting if it is non-blank.  The docs for VARREGEX will also have
a more verbose warning about the using the resource.
