Note that it's not the absolute size of the text that matters, but
rather how many backtracking points PHP's regular expression engine
ends up having to make.  In other words, setting pcre.backtrack_limit
says how many backtracks need to be saved, not how large the text is.
(And yes, with nested expression it's possible for the number of
backtracking points to grow very quickly.)

Beyond that, I'm a bit stumped as to what the problem might be.
Could you see if the text works on pmwiki.org ?
