Well, that string and the file aren't exactly the same. The file has
newlines in it, the string you're creating does not. So in the string,
it's all on the same line, while it's on separate lines in the file.

Preg_replace may be looking for that pattern on a single line. The /m
modifier may help in this circumstance, I'm not sure though.
