search_find_text() doesn't do regex search when the flags don't ask for
it, it only uses SCI_FINDTEXT().


BTW, @Steven: search_find_text() is *NOT* part of the Geany plugin API
and never have been.  The fact you can use it is a issue of the way
Geany API was exported, and it is fixed in the dev version (meaning it
won't work anymore).  Not also that this never worked on Windows.

If you need the function, tell us and we can probably add it.  Though
here all you need is SCI_FINDTEXT, that is already available through
sicnitlla_send_commend(sci, SCI_FINDTEXT, flags, ttf).
