I am using FN munger to find and replace text.
It works perfectly as long as the find$ and replace$ are equal in length.

However, when find$ is longer than replace$ the last characters of the entire
text handle (length = to the difference between the find$ and replace$ times
the number of changes made) is duplicated and fills the space left by the
deletion of the longer find string.
and when find$ is shorter than replace$ the end of the text is truncated by
the diffence in length of the find$ and replace$ times the number of changes made.

How can I correct this?
