To reproduce:

  emacs -Q
  M-x electric-quote-mode RET
  M-x set-variable RET electric-quote-replace-double RET t RET

Type:

  "foo \"foo\""

You get this in the buffer:

  "foo \”foo\”"

I expected "foo \“foo\”" instead.


I think it's not completely clear what to expect here. After all, electric quote is for human-language text, which normally doesn't contain backslashes.
At least in the context of Emacs Lisp strings, I'd expect "foo \"foo\"" here, i.e., ASCII quotes. The non-ASCII quotes don't need to be escaped, so presumably escaping means that the user intended to type an ASCII quote.
