Convert sed to BRE

I have had an open bug report for around 8 years now on the main project, with
no progress.  Hoping that maybe we can fix this here instead.

The simplest solution is to append the switch `-E` to every call to sed (I
haven't tested this, but assume it will work), or alternatively the attached
patch modifies the regular expressions to only use valid BRE expressions.
