      Additionally, issuing any of

      :help s/\1
      :help s/\2
      :help s/\9

      gives me an

      E65: Illegal back reference

      but then proceeds to go to the correct help target. Issuing

      :help s/\~

      gives me

      E33: No previous substitute regular expression
      E149: Sorry, no help for s/\~

      despite such a help-target in the aforementioned section.

      I seem to recall Bram looking into this a while back and fixing it,
      but it seems to have returned.
