The problem is that your first search string ‘^(=+)’ populates 
capture register $1 and the nested replacements inherit variables from 
parent matches.

In your case, you can lose the parentheses. If you needed captures in 
the root search and conditionals in a nested replacement, a workaround 
would be to use named captures (to avoid clashes).
