Does modifying a regex under SVN Symbolic Rules force a full reindex?

We have a very large codebase, which took over a week to fully index. While we've got some better hardware, so it hopefully won't take that long again, I'm still trying to avoid having to go through the whole process again. Unfortunately, I realized that I misspelled something in a branch regex under the SVN Symbolic Rules.

If I fix this, will this force a full reindex?

I'm afraid it does.

Edit: When you change a regexp, FishEye will suggest that you re-index the repository.
In most cases that's indeed the best thing to do.
However, you can choose to ignore the suggestion to re-index.
After a restart of the repo the already indexed data is preserved.
Only new changesets will be indexed with the new regexps.
In some circumstances this can be exactly what you want, or you don't care that the already indexed data was done using the old regexps.
If you're not sure, it's best to run the re-index as FishEye suggests, so the data is consistent with the configuration.
