Description:
------------
Regular expression that *should* match a text does not match it. In the code sample, the second preg_match will match the link in the string, but not the first, and the only difference is that the input string contains an extra 'a' letter.

Test script:
---------------
$regex = '/(^|[\n\s\>\\";]+)([^ \,"\t\n\r<>;]+\.[^ \,\"\t\n\r<]+)/iu';

$text = 'This is a normal text. http://vg.no, VG';
preg_match_all($regex, $text, $matches);
print_r($matches);

$text = 'This is normal text. http://vg.no, VG';
preg_match_all($regex, $text, $matches);
print_r($matches);

Expected result:
----------------
Both $matches should contain the link http://vg.no

Actual result:
--------------
Only the last $matches contains the link.
