Fixed in revision 13918.

Note that there may be a problem when replacing 'a' by something that contains 'a', like 'axa'.  Replacing all occurrences of 'a' by 'axa' in 'aaaaa' will result in a segfault.

But one may argue that the user should never do something silly of this kind...

I can confirm this. It seems to me that the cursor is moved twice, both in `(replace-next by)` and `(replace-next* by)` in `TeXmacs/progs/generic/search-widgets.scm`. Commenting out lines 353-359 (while closing parentheses) fixes this for me. Someone will need to double check this, as I may be misunderstanding something about the intention of this code.

The Replace Tool in Texmacs 2.1.2 does not function properly.

Starting with

Replacing a by x in a separate window and pressing „Replace all further occurrences“ results in:


That is not exactly what one wants.
