Reporting against Babaco Release : 
Tested link :

Steps to Reproduce ::

1) Enter text as 




2) Search for test[^ ]* and replace the text with QA and click on replace all
<<All the 4 items get removed and one item there with the word QA>>

3) Tried the same with

<<It correctly replace the word start with test and gave the result as QA plan for all 4 instances>>

Expected Outcome::

Test Environment::
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20100202 Firefox/3.5.8

This is expected, test[^ ]* will match the entire input in the first case as there are no space characters. If you want the behaviour you seem to, use test[^\s]* so that newlines are also excluded.
