The example mentioned in the original bug report
Searching for text using zero-length-assertions both sides and trying to replace then using $1 and so on as implicit variablles for found groups results in different errors under certain conditions.
-1- 'Find Next' and subsequent 'Replace': No action.
-2- 'Replac All': The group variables are wrongly inserted as literals.
SAME replacements in Calc are done as expeczed.
Steps to reproduce: Too many, to difficult (for me) to describe unambiguously.
See attached example.
Replace with: lz_$1
