I can reproduce it only in 5.2.

I've no 5.3 version to try, but I just tried in 5.2.11 and can reproduce the error.

I can't:

Exactly what encodings are you using? (check phpinfo() for mbstring.*)

# php -i |grep mbstring\\.
mbstring.detect_order => no value => no value
mbstring.encoding_translation => Off => Off
mbstring.func_overload => 7 => 7
mbstring.http_input => pass => pass
mbstring.http_output => pass => pass
mbstring.internal_encoding => UTF-8 => UTF-8
mbstring.language => neutral => neutral
mbstring.strict_detection => Off => Off
mbstring.substitute_character => no value => no value

Good question!

php -i |grep mbstring
mbstring.detect_order => no value => no value
mbstring.encoding_translation => Off => Off
mbstring.func_overload => 0 => 0
mbstring.http_input => pass => pass
mbstring.http_output => pass => pass
mbstring.internal_encoding => ISO-8859-1 => no value
mbstring.language => neutral => neutral
mbstring.substitute_character => no value => no value

If I change to UTF-8 everything seems to work as expected:
ini_set('mbstring.internal_encoding', 'UTF-8');

Exactly..
