Bug Type: PCRE related
PHP Version: 4.0.5
Assigned To: 

You escaped the $1000 on the PHP level, so literal $1000 was sent to PCRE, where $10 
was interpreted as a backreference, and since there aren't 10 capturing subpatterns in 
the pattern, you get an empty string for $10, and the rest is taken as a literal 

Send further questions to php-general@ (after you RTFM, of course).

The problem is that preg_replace() ignores escaping of $nn sequence in the replacement 
$str = preg_replace("/a/", "$1000", "test ... a ... test");
echo $str;

test ... 00 ... test 

#!/usr/local/bin/perl -w

$_ = "test ... a ... test";
test ... $1000 ... test

This feature leads to impossibility of passing strings like '$1000' via phplib 
template variables.

PHP 4.0.4pl1, 4.0.5
