Abstract: Let $ (X,\sigma )$ be a given topological space. A compression $ \tau $ of $ \sigma $ is regular-invariant if and only if for every regular space $ Y$ the $ \sigma $-continuous functions into $ Y$ are also $ \tau $-continuous. $ \sigma $ is regular minimal if no proper compression of $ \sigma $ is regular-invariant. J. A. Guthrie and H. E. Stone posed the problem of whether every semiregular space is regular minimal. We answer this question in the negative.
