I don't know, but did you try something like the following using
a TextFileDocumentProvider?

public void replaceText( IFile file, int offset, int length, String text )
    IDocumentProvider provider = new TextFileDocumentProvider();
        IDocument document = provider.getDocument(file);
        if ( document != null )
    catch (CoreException e)
    catch (BadLocationException e)
