Default fail2ban - SquirrelMail Error

Hello, i have followed the tut http://www.howtoforge.com/configurin....3-ispconfig-3
and have completed all steps by the book (triple checked this one).

The squirrelmail_access_log has been created and there are 4 failed tries like:
04/18/2012 09:46:23 [LOGIN_ERROR] admin@domainname (localhost) from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx: Unknown user or password incorrect.

After i use the fail2ban-regex /var/lib/squirrelmail/prefs/squirrelmail_access_log /etc/fail2ban/filter.d/squirrelmail.conf

i get the Following error:

Running tests

Use regex file : /etc/fail2ban/filter.d/squirrelmail.conf
Use log file : /var/lib/squirrelmail/prefs/squirrelmail_access_log

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/sre.py", line 227, in _compile
raise error, v # invalid expression
sre_constants.error: redefinition of group name 'Y' as group 7; was group 3

As you can see my python version is 2.4, the Fail2ban version is 0.8.4-29.el5(epel) though i have tried this on the 8.2 with the same error( i did upgrade to 8.4 since two days now).

I have also followed the instructions on this topic (exacly the same problem but python 2.6) https://www.centos.org/modules/newbb...topic_id=32369
without success...any one has this problem solved?
I admit giving up on this one although a system is as strong as your weekest link :S
