parametre count didn't work well

Reproduce code:
the doc code

$count = 0;

echo preg_replace(array('/\d/', '/\s/'), '*', 'xp 4 to', -1 , $count);
echo $count; //3

Expected result:
i expect the doc result 3 :)

Actual result:
actualy the result I have is

Warning: Wrong parameter count for preg_replace() in e:\...php on line x 

it meen that the $count variable is to much I think !
maby the probleme came because i don't upgrade my php version well.(php4->php5)

other question :

why the don'give the same synthaxe for the preg_replace than

mixed preg_replace ( mixed pattern, mixed replacement, mixed subject [, int limit [, int &count]] )

mixed  preg_replace ( mixed   pattern , mixed   replacement , mixed   subject , int   limit , int   count ) 

int &count != int count
(using reference ???)

thanks telnes

my php version PHP 5.1
 [2006-01-14 13:38 UTC]
There is no such version as 5.1.
We know nothing about (what was it name again?), is the only site where you should look for the docs.
And yes, your code works fine.
