Bug description:  Function fscanf does not correctly handle "\t" in format string

When I copy&paste sample from documentation of fscanf function, I found,
that it work incorrectly:

while ($userinfo = fscanf ($fp, "%s\t%s\t%s\n")) {
    list ($name, $profession, $countrycode) = $userinfo;

Sample file:
abc<tab>def ghi jkl<tab> ..... <newline>
Note: <tab> means here a "tabelator" character (\t)

$name = 'abc'
$profession = 'def';
$contrycode = 'jkl';

I expect:
$name = 'abc'
$profession = 'def ghi jkl';
$contrycode = ' .... ';

What si wrong???
