Re: [Evolution] Search selects the search term in the email

More of an annoyance than anything else.

When you search for something using "Message contains" (and possibly
others), the term you search for is highlighted everywhere in the body
of the resulting emails using a yellow background, which is nice.

However, the first occurrence of the term in the email is also selected
- this means that on replying to the email (which is often what I need
to do), only the selected term is included in the reply as quoted text
(which is most certainly not what is needed). So the sequence goes
Search -> Reply -> Swear -> cancel -> unselect -> Reply.

Is there a reason why the search term is selected?

My guess would be a bug. This is clearly undesirable behaviour. I'd say
a bug report is in order.
