Problem description: formula no longer works - regular expression not interpreted correctly
Steps to reproduce:
1. ensure regular expressions are enabled in options
2. enter a formula which uses regular expressions, e.g. =countif(A2:A5,".*Y.*") into cell A1
3. type Y in cell A2
Current behavior: doesn't count it
Expected behavior: counts it
NB: =countif(A2:A5,"Y") works as expected

Formula with regular expressions no longer works.
These formulae gives the same results, option enabled or not.
Seen with new files created with 184.108.40.206, also with files created with previous versions and opened with 220.127.116.11.
This file created with 18.104.22.168 gives expected result while opened with 3.6.1.
So option is enabled and correctly stored in .xml
I most likely found this problem.
Please note that even with my fix you need a Ctrl+Shift+F9 for a manual hard recalc.
