Bug description:  nl2br doesn't ad XHTML slash

It seems that contrary to the docs, nl2br doesn't replace returns with <br/>, only 
with <br>.

Give it a try with:
print htmlspecialchars(nl2br("line1 \n line2 \n line3"));

If you're looking for XHTML compliance, use:

function nl2br_xhtml($text) {
        return str_replace("<br>", "<br />", nl2br($text));



My config command:
'./configure' '--prefix=/usr' '--with-config-file-path=/etc' '--disable-debug' 
'--enable-pic' '--enable-shared' '--enable-inline-optimization' 
'--with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs' '--with-exec-dir=/usr/bin' '--with-regex=system' 
'--with-gettext' '--with-gd' '--with-jpeg-dir=/usr' '--with-png' '--with-zlib' 
'--with-db2' '--with-db3' '--with-gdbm' '--enable-debugger' '--enable-magic-quotes'
