Source code for test case

The bad regular expression "[[a-z]([a-z]|(([[a-z])))" seems to run an
unexpected execution path during regular expression compilation which ended up
in a segmentation fault (if compiled with -release) or an assertion failure (if
Verified with dmd 2.065 and ldc2-0.12-1 (the latter causes an 'illegal
instruction' crash if compiled with -release). 

Instead of crashing, the bad expression should be rejected with a proper
exception like "wrong character class" (as for other syntactically wrong

Note: the terms "[[a-z]" were intended to be "[\\[a-z]".
