   >x', '\1', $data);

Does not work on Darwin Kernel Version 9.2.0 and Apache/2.2.6 either (tested under PHP 5.2.4 as well). Crashes with the same message as reported.

The release notes for PHP 5.2.5 do not mention any fix for this particular bug.

Same problem with customer's Drupal. Fresh up-to-date ports, FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE, PHP 5.2.11, Apache 2.2.14.

The same situation:
* os x 10.10.4
* homebrew
* php 5.6.10
* apache 2.4.12

It works from command line, but doesn't work from apache.

<?php

$data = file_get_contents("test.html");
$regexp = '!(?:\s*<tr class="row\d+">(?:\s*'
        . '<td class="column\d+(\s+style\d+ [a-z])?">&nbsp;<\/td>)*\s*<\/tr>)+!s';
$data = preg_replace($regexp, "", $data);
var_dump($data);

test.html is here https://gist.github.com/sormy/b77420c0f0a9a50cbef1

this code will cause:
