I don't know why the problem wasn't noticed (or perhaps didn't occur?) 
earlier. PPCRE is used heavily in the preprocessor (activated via 
"-tok=fsr"). I don't use PET regularly, but when I last tested it with 
RMRS output (in the process of integrating the FSR preprocessor) I 
didn't observe the current problem. Most people will be using an 
official PET release, which will be older than the contents of the 
current SVN...

Note also that something is broken in the current ERG with respect to 
cfrom/cto on EPs (the values get lost, at least when running under the 
LKB). I have no idea if this is relevant...
