From manual page:

A location aware replacement for Example #3:

$format = '%%e%%%e%%'; // Jan 1: results in: '%e%1%' (%%, e, %%, %e, %%)

if (strtoupper(substr(PHP_OS, 0, 3)) == 'WIN') {
    $format = preg_replace('#(?<!%)((?:%%)*)%e#', '\1%#d', $format);

This bug has been fixed in SVN. Since the websites are not directly
updated from the SVN server, the fix might need some time to spread
across the globe to all mirror sites, including itself.

Thank you for the report, and for helping us make better.
