    [] [STDERR] PHP Warning: preg_match() [<a href='function.preg-match'>function.preg-match</a>]: Compilation failed: internal error: overran compiling workspace at offset 17795 in /home/johndoe/public_html/forum/sources/classes/class_session.php on line 187

    This appears on the error_log sometimes. What does it mean?

    This error is usually because a variable is being used in a preg_* function. Usually placing the variable (denated with a $ in front of a word like $variable) inside of preg_quote() fixes this. For example $variable would become preg_quote($variable). Without seeing the code on that line though its hard to say for sure.

    EDIT: I should also note that improper information being fed to this variable could cause this as well and it may not be an actual bug per say.
