I tried this in all viper-mode levels (GNU Emacs 21.4.1, i386 Linux):

Inserting a new line break in an existing line by "r <Return>"
(more exactly: replacing the current character by a newline)
does not work; instead, '^M' appears as replacement text.

(The alternative "r C-j" _does_ work, but is not what my fingers
are used to do in vi.)

Is it possible to make "r <Return>" work as well? Is this a known
limitation or bug? (Well, yes, it is known, I found the post

but I haven't found any suggestions how to change this behavior.)

The version of viper-cmd.el distributed with Emacs 21.3 has this snippet
in the viper-replace-char-subr function:

      (if (eq char ?\C-m) (setq char ?\n))

So perhaps you're using an old version of viper -- what do `M-x
locate-library RET viper' and `M-x list-load-path-shadows' tell
