[Edinburgh-pm] Dumb regex question

Hi Guys,

Ok, I need to find all words that have a lower case letter followed by
an upper case one.  I cannot seem to get it to work.  Here is my
attempt.  Note that this must be in Unicode because I have data with
accent marks in it.

my @words = ("díne", "láechreraig", "caínConchobor");

foreach my $word (@words) {
        if($word =~ m/\p{IsLower}(?=\p{IsUpper})/) {
                 print "$word\n";

The only word here that should be matched is "caínConchobor" and words
like it.  Right now the regex matches all the words which isn't what I
was expecting.
