Package: emacs24
Version: 24.1+1-4
Severity: normal

Hash: SHA1

When this expression is evaluated, Emacs will abort.

      (insert "#\n*\n")
      (goto-char (point-min))
      (add-hook 'after-change-functions
                (lambda (a b c) (re-search-forward "\n" nil t)))
      (replace-regexp "^\\*" " *"))

It is also provided in an attached file, example.el, in order to make
this easier to demonstrate.

    emacs -q -l example.el

The abort() occurs in the check at the beginning of
buf_charpos_to_bytepos() in marker.c, because the point has left the
buffer bounds. I ran into this bug while trying to perform this
replace-regexp while in a third-party markdown-mode, and narrowed it
down to this combination of events.

This bug also appears in emacs23 in both squeeze and sid as well as
upstream and non-Debian builds of Emacs.
