strpos($str, $needles, $offset);

if $str haves ':',
if $needles have ':',
then $offset does not have mean.

Reproduce code:
$str = "::soon::::soon::::soon::";
for($i=0; $i<3; $i++)
	echo(strpos($str, "::soon::", $i).' ');

Expected result:
0 8 16

0 8 8

The expected result is 0 8 8 for your code, so what is the problem?

The offset parameter of strpos is not 'how many matches to skip', it's the character index to start searching from. This should be marked as bogus.
