Sizzle: p:contains(text) fails when text has both parenthesis and newlines

I am using latest version of Sizzle as time of writing (1.9.2-pre, 2013-04-09.

Reproducing is easy: type Sizzle("p:contains(fo(o\\nbar)") in console. You get: Syntax error, unrecognized expression: p:contains(fo(o bar), at least in Chrome.

I suspect a regular expression missing the global flag to pass newlines, but I did not look at the code in detail.

(Actually the previous version of Sizzle I was using had much more problems with strange pseudo selectors such as this one, so this is already an improvement.)

Please fix :-)
