I am far from a regexp expert, but sometimes I get lucky.  Since no one else 
has replied so far, these would be my suggestions:

Test the regex in some other application where testing is easier.  (I tested 
it in kate (2.4.2) and it works there, so that didn't help.)

In my testing I confirmed (to myself) that you don't need the square brackets 
arount the \s--try \s+ or(\s)+.

Good luck!
