Bug #6488: String#slice example has a syntax error

http://www.ruby-doc.org/core-1.9.3/String.html#method-i-slice has a syntax error:

a[%r[aeiou](.)\11//]      #=> "ell"
a[%r[aeiou](.)\11//, 0]   #=> "ell"
a[%r[aeiou](.)\11//, 1]   #=> "l"
a[%r[aeiou](.)\11//, 2]   #=> nil

Oh, I have just realized that similar problems exist in the other regexp examples on the page, not just for slice.
