I'm using simscan-1.4.0 w/ --enable-regex. I have few regex in place that are working fine.

I'm trying to add following regex \/\d{9,11} to my /var/qmail/control/simcontrol.

my logs showing to me following:

@40000000522f850926f9c2a4 simscan: regex 9 is \/\d{9

I test my regex w/ pcregrep it works fine as expected (simscan uses pcre).

If I get rid of comma, full regex will be shown in logs as it should.

should I replace curly braces w/ something else? what's the workaround here?
