Prefer selecting to underlining, there is enough crap in the edit
window as is.

1. Selecting the text makes it work like normal find and

2.  it makes focusing the edit window actually useful.

I didn't even notice that the edit window didn't focus since I always
have to click where on the line I want the cursor, if the search text
is selected then thats a likely useful position making focus useful,
and then ordinary search can focus as well.

Lets not be inconsistent, lets not have some searches focus the edit
window and some not, some select the text and some not.

Good idea.

Good idea.
