[Pkg-mc-devel] Bug#584241: mcedit goes to endless loop when trying to replace \n regexp with any substring

Package: mc
Version: 3:
Severity: normal    

Go to the mcedit, create some text with several lines in it, press F4, 
enter \n into "Enter search string:" and chose "Regular expression".   
Press All in " Confirm replace" dialog.                                

Now you will have to kill your mcedit, as it will do repacing forever.
