This fix should be improved later.

I fixed this bug in revision 13345.

However, my fix is very dirty.  It seems that the routine
texmacs->code does not convert backquotes in the expected way.
Maybe Darcy can look into this and propose a better solution.

Hi. I use Texmacs in Maxima session.
I want to use "ezunits" Maxima`s package for units conversions but Texmacs doesn`t allow to use the apostrophe character.
For example, I want to calculate 1 kg + 100 g:
1 ` kg + 100 ` g `` kg
but I get the error:
incorrect syntax: â is not an infix operator
I tried different apostrophes but every time I got an error.
