the regex dont find big text matches.
i tried to extract tables from a website, and I could extract small tables, but with big ones (40-50 complex rows) it said that nothing was found (missmatch).
i hardcode a website where it crashes, so you can check it for yourselves.
i tested the code handcutting text from the tables to make them smaller and them was recogniced succefully.

Reproduce code:
$file = '';
$content = file_get_contents($file);
// here i try to found a table
$found = ereg ('<table>[s|^s|'."\n".'|'."\r".']</table>',$html,$regex);
echo $regex[0];

Expected result:
see just a table

Actual result:
the table is not found

Thank you for this bug report. To properly diagnose the problem, we
need a short but complete example script to be able to reproduce
this bug ourselves. 

A proper reproducing script starts with <?php and ends with ?>,
is max. 10-20 lines long and does not require any external 
resources such as databases, etc.

If possible, make the script source available online and provide
an URL to it here. Try to avoid embedding huge scripts into the report.
