What are the limits of the Search/Replace command on the Mac platform?

I have a file that contains several thousand instances of: rgbt <number, number,
number, 1.000000>  I need to replace all of those 1.000000  t-values with  0.
(The source of the 1.000000 values is the modeling program, DS Visualizer, and
I can't fix it. It's a known bug in Visualizer.)

I can replace a small set of them, say on the order of 25 or so with
Search/Replace All, Selection only.

However, if I select all of the entire file, or even more than a couple of
hundred cases, and do the same Search/Replace All, Selection only, I get the
Mac spinning color wheel of the death, and the program locks up. I have to
Force Quit POV Ray.

This isn't a problem on the Windows version.

Is this a known problem for Mac 3.6.0 build197?

Thanks,

Greg
