Bug: Empty string is a valid variable name

You can "Set" an empty string, and then use the value:

   * Set  = EMPTY
%%
gives:
  • Set = EMPTY
%%

The answer is trivial; there's an RE in Prefs.pm, in parseText, that has a * where it should have a +.

Or you can take my PrefsPmPerformanceFixes patch.

of course this may be desired (though undocumented) behaviour; if so, I need to change the patch.
