Description:The REGEX dialplan function is using some wacky code to determine the regexp and the data to regexp, by default the funtion searches the whole string between the () for the first " from the left and the first " from the right.

This causes regexp data which contains " to be included in the regexp, breaking it. The solution is to replace the earg = strrchr(arg, '"'); with earg = strchr(arg, '"'); (func_strings.c)

${BAR}="hello \"AAAAA\" afj"
IE REGEX("foo" ${BAR})

Result ins regexp: "foo hello "AAAAA "on data "afj"

this has been fixed in 1.2.  It should already work fine in the trunk.  Thanks!
