Mensagem:  I think it does. Although Pat, a native speaker, claims that it doesn't. I, myself, have used it (ain't) for all tenses before and never really questioned myself. I think, for the fact that it has been STIGMATIZED in the first place, when people use it, they don't really care to what tense it's applied. They use it regardless of the rule. -MIGUEL VIEIRA
