I'm trying to use preg_replace to replace $ with \$.

Here is a sample script:


$data = '$_hello_$world';

$data = preg_replace('/\$/i','\$',$data);
print "data : $data\n";


I expect the script to output \$_hello_\$world. However, version 4.0.5 is outputing 

This worked in version 4.0.4

It possible this bug is related to bug# 10668
