CurrencyField problem

I'm using Silverstripe 2.4.0 for a project at the moment and I am using a couple of CurrencyFields on a particular page type in the CMS.

Unfortunately I am unable to save the page as I keep getting the following javascript error:

$("Form_EditForm").validateCurrency is not a function

Has anyone else encountered this? and does anyone know of a fix?

Additional info:

Currently have recreated this in Firefox 3.6.8 and the most recent version of Chrome on Mac OS X.

It only seems to be a problem when the CMS loads straight to that page (eg. if I click that page in the CMS and then refresh I will get the javascript error). However, if I load the CMS on a different page and then click on the page in question, I get no errors and it saves fine.

I have this same issue, seems to be more of a bug than just a problem. Did any of you get this resolved?

To add to this. I have the same problem.

The problem is in:

function jsValidation()

particuallarly the regex pattern match:

To recreate this problem create a CurrencyField in your page. Select that page in the CMS. Refresh the page in your browser. In the firebug console you will notice the error:
invalid quantifier

Then when saving the page the following error occurs:
$("Form_EditForm").validateCurrency is not a function

When you change the regex it no longer throws errors (although it no longer correctly validates against what it should).

I found changing the regex to the following worked:
