This problem showed up after an upgrade to php 5.2.3 that was accompanied by a pcre upgrade to ver 7.0.  It works fine on my local system (php 5.2.3, pcre 6.7)

The browser returns a download dialog rather than an error.

If I remove the "=" from the pattern, it works, but doesn't find anything.

Reproduce code:
$s = "((?is-U)<input(?:(?:\s*\w*\s*(?:=(?:(?:'.*?')|(?:\".*?\")|(?:\w*)))?)*)(?:>|(?:\/>)))";
$formHTML = "Nothing to see here:<input name='blah' value=''></input>";
echo preg_replace("/" . $s . "/is", "muffin", $formHTML);


Expected result:
I would expect this code to replace the input tag string with "muffin".  I would also expect it not to crash.

Actual result:
Download dialog box.

Looks like yet another PCRE 7.0 regression, which is fixed by PCRE 7.2 (available in CVS version).
At least I can't reproduce it here.
