It occurred to me that you may be experiencing a problem with locales.
To see the locale you are currently running use the 'locale' command.


To override all locale settings and force the C (aka POSIX) locale set

  export LC_ALL=C

Then please try your failing sed case again.  If that solves the
problem then the problem would be related to locales.
