    When using specific regular expressions in data correlation
    rules file, the "Re-correlate data" wizard and the "Generate
    test" wizard may report the error "Unbalanced ( in regular
    expression" or "Unbalanced ) in regular expression" although
    all regular expressions used in the file are actually
    correct. This happens on regular expressions that use the
    character class feature (e.g. [a-z] or [.-$;]) and include
    the characters '(' and/or ')'.
