Software testing terminology

I'm trying to research a term for software testing. Specifically, that applies to the following scenario:

  1. You've got software "S", which is in version V
  2. S has functionality to "whiz," "bang," and "zoom"
  3. You find a bug with S's zooming
  4. You apply a patch to address the zoom function
  5. S can now zoom
  6. S can no longer whiz.

My question: What types of tests are specifically designed to ensure that a patch to a particular module doesn't unexpectedly break other modules? Is this simply a special case of Regression Testing? is there a special term for this?
