applied, thanks! With the followup below, doing two things both already present
before your optimization, so just FYI:
* non-capturing group for things we do not use
* fix matching of \r\n sequence, as this was non-greedy and so a \r\n was matched
  as two lines, one with \r and one with \n. But, the regex clearly indicates that
  this wasn't intended.

Also, I made the change to not use the s modifier also for the $h eq $error case,
for consistency (it does not matters much, we do not use . here)
