I wrote the following version of transpose-chars which is supposed to
always transform the last two chars without moving the point.
(defun gosmacs-tranpose-chars (n)
  (interactive "p")
    (forward-char (- n))
    (transpose-chars 1)))

The trouble is, even though I have used save-excursion, the point does
move 2 characters backwards when n=1! For other values of n, this seems to be working fine.

I've committed a fix to trunk.
