Regular expression find doesn't recognize non-greedy marker

Version: 2.5.16

To reproduce - create text document and paste following text:

test texture texture texture endtest

Press Ctrl+F, open options, select regular expression matching, enter search term "t.*?e".

Expected: all "texture" occurances highlighted.

Tested: nothing is highlighted, expression is not found.

Hi Adam,

Thanks for the example.  We have a custom regular expression engine that doesn't currently support non-greedy matching.  We'll mark it down as a feature request.
