It does seem like it's a bit but not completely broken.

when I try Search, it doesn't highlight the first time it finds the 
word, but if you click Search again, it will find and highlight the 
second, and the rest.

Similarly, if you are going to Search/Replace, Replace is greyed out 
before you have pressed Search, then you can Search/Replace afterward, 
so again, it looks like you miss the first instance.

Worth submitting a bug for, if you can't find one already. I didn't try 
but I suppose if you continue searching after the end of the frame, it 
may then find that first instance.
