I submited a debian bug report about this but it has so far been ignored. When doing a find the selected text is offset a few characters from the correct text. I've observed this on .tex latex files on gedit 2.4.1 on debian sid. This makes replace useless. The debian bug report is here: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=223974 Pedro.
