Description:
------------
I tried to parse a .xml-file using the regular expression as below. Using the s modifier reproduces a crash, leaving it away the crash does not appear.

System message:

The exception "unkown software expection" (0xc00000fd) occured in the program at 0x00c3912d. OK / Cancel

(translated from German error message)

Reproduce code:
---------------
preg_match_all('~<(\w+)/?>(.)*</(\1)>~sm', $this->sFile, $aTags); // havin s modifier reproduces the crash, leaving it away = no crash

Expected result:
----------------
Regular Expression matches

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit http://www.php.net/support.php as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

This code does infact cause a crash (not limited to Win32). However, the crash is the result of a bug in the PCRE library, please report it to the authors of said library. This is not a PHP bug.
