Unexpected yankpad-expand behavior #46

Consider this fragment of my yankpad file:

** Simple string replacements                                   :snippetlist:

   - wtf :: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The yankpad-expand replacement for wtf is "¯\". Oddly, if I replace the first underscore with a "." or other character, it works fine. So for some reason backslash followed by underscore stops the expansion. Putting in an extra backslash doesn't help.

Thanks for reporting this! The problem had to do with the org-element API and how I used it. It seems to treat text followed by a backslash in some special way. I've commited a patch which seems to fix the issue.
