I am trying to do some simple find and replace. Not a big deal. I'm not even using regex. This is simple string replacement. META-%, String1, String2. Should be simple. Lately, I've been getting a really weird error that I don't understand. From Messages ;
Mark set replace-match-maybe-edit: Args out of range: 597, 607
I have a longish .sql file open and I wanted to change some date strings. I entered both strings and then hit the exclamation point to tell emacs I want to change ALL of the strings available and I got this weird Args out of range error. I've gotten this several times lately. A few days ago I did play around with ECB, which I decided to not use but I'm pretty sure I've removed all of the ECB stuff from my init.el. There's some cruft in there, but nothing ridiculous and this error only started in the last couple of days.
I've done some Googling but I can't seem to find anything. Thoughts?
In my most recent example, I was replacing a date string:
Query replace (default 2012-04-01 -> 2001-01-01):
In other instances over the past few days, I've done simpler find and replaces with similar results.
