It seems to me, that regular expression doesn't work with international character-set. When the regexpr-compiler sees an non-english character it simply stops processing the remaining string.

For example:

$foo = ereg("([0-9]+):([a-zA-Z??????]*):([0-9]+)", "0:???Abcb:10", $out);

Doesn't process the regular expression correctly. 

I have tried to do a set_locale("da_DK...").
