I don't think there's a single solution... Which bot are you using and
with what command line options?

Not exactly sure what you mean by bot... I'm using Pywikipedia, but I guess bot would refer to "replace.py"?

Examples of the commands I'm using are:

python replace.py -regex "(?s)appropriate technology(.*$)" "[[appropriate technology]]\\1" -xml:currentdump.xml -exceptinsidetag:link -exceptinsidetag:hyperlink -exceptinsidetag:header


python redirect.py double -always
