Bug in Find/Replace?

This is in HTML view (I never use that other view):

If I'm doing Replace on text that occurs many times in the page, sometimes Find will get confused: it finds the next match, but instead of highlighting the entire match, it will highlight all but the first character. Once this happens, Replace refuses to do anything, and Find says 'no more matches' (even if there are plenty of them further down the file).

This is persistent, too: closing the article and re-opening it has no effect on the problem.

Has anybody else noticed this?

P.S. The shortcut for Find/Replace is Ctrl-H when editing articles but Ctrl-R when editing other files....

I haven't noticed that particular bug, but something similar happens during spelling checks sometimes.  The program goes haywire and starts selecting text across word boundaries.

I noticed that bug, too.  My experience is here:
