bug#17183: can't insert a quote pair before another

From: Stefan Monnier
Subject: bug#17183: can't insert a quote pair before another
Date: Fri, 04 Apr 2014 11:03:33 -0400

Package: Emacs
Version: 24.3.50

emacs -Q -f electric-pair-mode -f text-mode
C-a "

The first " inserts a pair of double quotes, like I expect, but the
second refuses to insert anything and instead it jumps forward to after
the first double quote.  Maybe there are cases where that makes sense,
but that's much too clever for me.

The situation where I bumped into it was that I had the text

    I suggest you write "blabla" instead of

and I wanted to turn it into

    I suggest you write "blibli" and "blabla" instead of

so I put point after "write" and wanted to type

    SPC "blibli" SPC and

but instead I had to use C-q " twice, which was rather unpleasant.
