Could you please provide an example of the string where it

Also, could you post a ereg call you are using?

No feedback. If this happens also with soon to be released 
PHP 4.0.5, reopen this bug report with a short example 
script which can be used to reproduce this.

Hi, i am running 4.0.6 freshly installed from redhat 7.2 i believe this bug is still alive an whell

from PhormJr.php (which user to work just fine.)

**** $ph_tkln = ereg("{{[A-z0-9_]*}}", $ph_tline, $ph_tkn);
      while ($ph_tkln) {
        $ph_sub = substr($ph_tkn[0], 2, $ph_tkln-4);
        $$ph_sub = ereg_replace("{{", ":{:{", $$ph_sub);
        $ph_tline = ereg_replace($ph_tkn[0], $$ph_sub, $ph_tline);
        $ph_tkln = ereg("{{[A-z0-9_]*}}", $ph_tline, $ph_tkn);
      } // ($ph_tkln)
***  $ph_tline = ereg_replace(":{:{", "{{", $ph_tline);

I get an error at the line marked by ***
Warning: Invalid content of \{\} in /var/www/html/forms/phormjr.php3

putting slashes in front of it doesnt really work like:
$ph_tkln = ereg("\\{\\{[A-z0-9_]*\\}\\}", $ph_tline, $ph_tkn);
