Thanks for this Drew.

To find what I'm talking about 'Menu-bar -> Search -> Replace -> Global'
and the command that it generates is 'replace-string'. So I've assigned
a keyboard binding to it and its now working well, thanks.

But this problem has thrown up a difficulty for me, in that I can't use
'C-h k'! If I try it it always just shows the 'k', and ditto 'C-h w'!
How can I find what it has been mapped to please?
