Callbacks for own Validation Functions not working (bug?)

I used the code from the documentation, but it wont work.

function register(){
$this->form_validation->set_rules('username', 'Username', 'required|callback_username_check');

function username_check($str)
echo "debug: username_check called";

$this->form_validation->set_message('username_check', 'The %s field can not be the word "test"');
return FALSE;

I got an validation-error if the username field is empty (because of the "required" validation) so validation is working, but not with my custom validation, if i enter something the custom callback for validating is never called (i dont see the message, and i don't see the debug echo).

My environment is wampserver for windows with php: 5.2.5
and codeigniter is ver. 2.0.3

Am i doing something wrong or is this realy a bug?

Thanks for your help
