Hi Mitchell

A quick test here to confirm:

My buffer contained:

'Daß es nicht funktioniert ist nicht hilfreich'

I opened the search and replace dialog

Typed ß in Search and ss in Replace, ticked Regex and clicked on Search next

and got 'Abort: trap 6'

This doesn't happen when Regex is not ticked

Happens the same with 'La cigüeña española' and search for 'ñ' with Regex
ticked and unticked, so it is not just German :-)

And it happens when non ASCII text is both on the 'Search' and the
'Replace' field

Best, PA
