  1. You use ReplaceStr in a property formula.
  2. You replace a string with a longer one that contains the first string. For example, you replace "Fred" with "Frederick"
  3. When you test the formula on a node where a replacement will be made, OR save a value containing the search string, DRM stops responding. On the DRM server, CPU usage will be observed at 100% and the only solution is to restart the service.

Example formula:
This function replaces every double-quote character (") in the PLNMemberFormula property with a backslash and quote (\").
