   Dear GNU Emacs developers,

   I think I found a bug in the replacement operation.  Let us consider a
source text for LateX and assume that we want to replace the command for an
accented letter by the accented letter itself. For example, replacing \`{a} by
à using the accurate coding.  If we look into the documentation and would like 
to perform this operation by means of a Lisp code, that should be:

(while (re-search-forward "\\\B`{a}" nil t)
  (replace-match "Ã " nil nil))

Unfortunately, the replacement is \`{a} ====> \Ã

"\\\B..." is the same as "\\B...".  I think you meant "\\\\B..." or more
likely "\\B\\...".
