Hi,

I can confirm this behavior on GNU Emacs 25.1.50.7 (commit 7570b35).
The problem seems to be that `studlify-region' assumes that
`forward-word' and `backward-word' will stop at non-word characters (in
the sense of the regex `\W').

One possible solution would be to temporarily switch `subword-mode' off
in `studlify-region'.  Given the nonsensicality of the latter, and the
fact that it breaks studlyCapsIdentifiers anyway, this might be the
preferred solution.  If nobody proposes anything better, I'll tryto
prepare such a patch within a few days.
