You have defined an entity named "Ligatur". If you want to apply it
during export, you have to write either \Ligatur or \Ligatur{}. For
example, \alpha is correctly exported since there is:

  ("alpha" "\\alpha" t "&alpha;" "alpha" "alpha" "α")

in `org-entities'.

Note that old exporter doesn't apply your entity either (entities usage
doesn't change between both exporters). It just gives up each time he
sees a backslash which isn't followed by a known entity name, assuming
this will be handled by LaTeX.
