I guess that, sprintf function has a bug. Which command damages inserted values or texts.

Reproduce code:
<p><strong>Merhaba %s %s</strong><BR>
  Cenebaz.Com ?yeli?i i?in ba?vurdunuz. ?yeli?inizin kabul edilebilmesi i?in a?a??daki 
  link'e t?klaman?z gerekmektedir.<BR>
  Kullan?c? ad? : %s<BR>
  ?ifreniz : %s<br>
  <strong>?yelik Onay</strong></p>
<table width=\"130\" border=\"1\" cellpadding=\"0\" cellspacing=\"0\" bordercolor=\"#000000\">
    <td align=\"center\"><a href=\"\">?yeli?imi onayla</a></td>
<p><strong>?yelik ?ptal</strong></p>
<table width=\"130\" border=\"1\" cellpadding=\"0\" cellspacing=\"0\" bordercolor=\"#000000\">
    <td align=\"center\"><a href=\"\">?yeli?imi 
      iptal et</a></td>
<p><font color=\"#FF0000\">Cenebaz ?yesi oldu?unuzda, ?ye panelinden Canl? Sohbet 
  i?in kullan?c? yaratabilir ve sohbete hemen kat?labilirsiniz.</font></p>
  <A HREF=''></A></p>

$member_securitycode = 34567823;
$member_firstname = "xx";
$member_lastname = "xx";
$username = "xx";
$password = "xx";
$member_username = "xx";
$member_mail = "";

$mesaj = sprintf($ONAYLAMAMAIL, $member_firstname, $member_lastname, $username, $password, $member_securitycode, $member_username, $member_email, $member_securitycode, $username, $member_email);

echo $mesaj;

Expected result:
there should be get right $member_securitycode like 34567823 but sometimes it could be like 3456782 number.. It randomly crops a digit or a char (sometimes more than one char). I have fixed only loading php4.3.2 version, and the problem is solved.

Actual result:
I can show the bug to you if you wish. My server is running on php4.3.2 now. Because php4.3.3 has this bug.

Please provide shorter example. And without those weird characters.
