ESAPI getvalidinput regular expression problem

I found that if I want to pass any possible string to the getvalidinput method of the Validator class, the regular expression ".*" would make infinite wait during the java regular expression matching operation if the input string contains '\n' or '\r'. Does anyone know how to solve this problem? Thanks in advance!
