filter_var incorrectly validates some invalid e-mail adresses (see reproduce code).

Note: I am not 100% sure that this is the wrong behavior, however, it has changed from php 5.2 and I can't find a related bug or NEWS entry.

Reproduce code:
var_dump(filter_var('invalid@site', FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL));
var_dump(filter_var('invalid@site.', FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL));

Expected result:

Actual result:
string(13) "invalid@site."
string(12) "invalid@site"
