mb_ereg_replace() works incorrectly if 2nd parameter is multibyte and contains substings \\n (n - digit). It returns substing \n itself instead of corresponding parenthesized substring.

If 2nd parameter not multibyte - \\n correctly replaced with corresponding parenthesized substrings.

If 2nd parameter multibyte, but not contains \\n substrings - replacement works correctly.

Reproduce code:
function a2u ( $a ) {
    return mb_convert_encoding ( $a, "UTF-16LE", "ASCII" );

function u2a ( $a ) {
    return mb_convert_encoding ( $a, "ASCII", "UTF-16LE" );
mb_internal_encoding ( "UTF-16LE" );
mb_regex_encoding ( "UTF-16LE" );
$str = "abc..def";
$pat = "([^\.])\.\.([^\.])";
$rep = "\\1...\\2";
$res = mb_ereg_replace ( a2u ( $pat ), a2u ( $rep ), a2u ( $str ) );
echo "{" . $str . "}{" . u2a ( $res ) . "}\n";

I have tried Reproduce code in snapshot.
But, did not become the result of your report.

Could you confirm it again?

Thank you.

Yes, I confirm that bug exists and I can reproduce it. I download latest snapshot and take my example from this report. The result still "{abc..def}{ab\1...\2ef}" instead of "{abc..def}{abc...def}".

If you need any my assistance (my php.ini f.e.) please feel free to contact with me by my e-mail.

Oh! This is a big help.
Give me, your php.ini and program.
Please send to ''.

Thank You.
