Did you do a Find All? If so, I think the issue was more likely showing you the 1M results in the list view.
No, I had a single document open as its own project and was using Find / Replace (Command+F) to replace text in this one document.
Ok, a “Replace All” over 1M lines where the newline character is involved is indeed something that will take forever — GCD etc. is not the cure, as this is related to the underlying data structure used.
I have a better data structure in 2.0 but also some new features which probably overall will result in worse performance (and more memory used), so as for your original question, I symphatize with you and it is an understandable request, but TM tend to be more about features which work for normal sized documents than a text editor that scales well regardless of what you throw at it.
