check your PHP version is up to date.   I had some real problems with  
the preg_replace() function in PHP 5.2.3 and 5.2.4.

The new PHP 5.2.5 includes a new version of libpcre (7.3 Nuno) and  
that fixed the problem (or at least I hope it did, it hasn't happened  

the preg_() functions are definitely not infallible in PHP5 < 5.2.5.

Upgrading might fix it for you?
