replacement works as desribed, just the highlighting fails.

Usually when I see the highlighting is wrong I don't proceed with the
replace. I guess that is why I didn't pick up on the fact that the
highlighting is the problem. :-p

After seeing all the responses I proceeded with the replace, and I see
the same behaviour. Thank you every one for confirming this.


Ditto with the current emacs 24 bzr trunk.  I've reported the bug as
#6808.


Thanks a lot Tassilo! :)

Bye,

BTW, as running into difficulties with regexps is common:
quite often helps ancoring it

^\(.+ \)[0-9]+ =

\1

circumvents the bug
