Hmmm. No.... but it is now!

Actually, this wouldn't be expected to work because ^ and $ refer to  
the beginning and end of the *whole text*, not individual lines.

What ought to work would be something like

    Replace:  \n

What version are you running, btw? In a quick test, I didn't actually  
see any hang or crash using $, it just doesn't do what you wanted.
