Dear Olivier

I can confirm that now it's not possible (we talked in this list about
that some time ago with Mitchell). In the version 8.0 I made some hacks
in find.lua in order to allow this (when using the quasi-regex of
Scintilla), but I didn't yet manage to update these modifications for
the version 9.0 and propose them to Mitchell. Now a good workaround is

search .$ replace \0b

but it is not exactly the same thing because void lines are skipped.
Another possibility is:

search \n replace b\0 (if the newline is in Unix-style)
But with ^ obvioulsy the first line is skipped.

I hope to have soon some time to look better into the code...
