It may as well be a bug in 'glib'. I.e. PCRE functionality/interface could

Formally speaking, it's a 'glib' bug in any case - its 'configure' should
check for compatible version of PCRE.
Actually, it looks as if it may be simply a bad assumption within the
testsuite itself. If I change tests/regex-test.c:1183:
TEST_PARTIAL("a+b", "aa", FALSE); /* PCRE_ERROR_BAD_PARTIAL */
TEST_PARTIAL("a+b", "aa", TRUE);
then the test suite passes again. It looks from the NEWS in the
pcre-8.00 tarball that there were lots of fixes to partial matching so
the glib testsuite somehow needs to take those into account.
