An entry from my .bib file (managed by kbibtex) containing the bug
The letter combination 'st' is incorrectly written as the unicode ligature symbol 'ﬆ' to the .bib file for most entry fields
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Open a .bib file in kbibtex
2. Create a new item containing the combination 'st', e.g. in the title or the author field, if none is already present
3. Save changes to .bib file
4. Inspect the .bib file with a text editor
All appearances of 'st' are substituted by 'ﬆ' (see attached example)
Letter combination 'st' should be saved unchanged as the ligature symbol might not be displayed in a resulting .pdf file

I recently made the switch from i3wm (x11) to sway (wayland) as my window manager. I'm mentioning this just for the sake of completeness although I'm pretty sure the problem did not occur before I updated kbibtex to version 0.8.2 and my window manager should have nothing to do with the file management of kbibtex anyway.
I am quite sure that this bug is a duplicate of bug 405504. Please test the lastest code from branch 'master' or 'kbibtex/0.9' to confirm that it is gone.

You are absolutely right, switching to the latest git build fixed my problem! Thank you for your response and sorry for not checking the fixed reports as well before opening a new bug report!
