My experience with GNU sed didn't solve it.
$ sed --version
GNU sed version 4.1.2

Do any of your text documents use "mixed" line-endings? I'd be curious if
your sed left them alone. Perhaps it was built with different options than

And vim does really smart handling of large files. I did this on several
large dumpfiles, each a little over 700mb. The machine was an old 500mhz
Athlon with 128mb of ram. It took quite a while to execute the regular
expression, but it wasn't any slower than sed's mangling of the same file.
