This may be an XEmacs issue; it works for me using XEmacs 21.4.13.
Can you see if the function replace-regexp-in-string is defined?  To
do this, type:

M-x describe-function RET replace-regexp-in-string RET

On my XEmacs it comes up with:
`replace-regexp-in-string' is a compiled Lisp function
(replace-regexp-in-string REGEXP REPLACE STRING)


Mimic GNU Emacs function replace-regexp-in-string with XEmacs'

Do you see something similar or does it tell you "no match" when you
press return?
