I want to create a regexp out of an unknown string with spaces. I am not sure about the number of spaces in the actual string to match so I want to do a replacement like this:

   (replace-regexp-in-string "\s-+" "\s-+" "some space" nil t)

However this returns "some space" instead of "some\s-+space" which I expected. Is this a bug or am I misunderstanding the arguments in some way?

No, it was not a bug. I have to count my \. This works as expected using

  (replace-regexp-in-string "\\s-+" "\\s-+" "some space" nil t)

Sorry for the noise.
