This is a non-sense result and is a sure sign there is a problem
in the code you used to get this result.

In order for anyone to do this you will need to post the code
that produced the results you posted above. From what you have
posted, I expect the source of the problem is likely to be the
pattern you are using for ReplaceAll.
