See reproduce code, error: Fatal error: Using $this when not in object context in /home/michiel/public_html/test.php(11) : regexp code on line 1

Reproduce code:
class a
	var $a = array();

	function a()
		$output = preg_replace(
				"(in_array('\\1',\$this->a) ? '\'.\$p[\'\\1\'].\'' : '\'.\$r[\'\\1\'].\'')",
				"{a} b {c}");
new a();

Expected result:
Worked just fine in PHP4
