Thanks for your report, is that reproducible only with that pdf you're seeing? or you can reproduce it too with another files? If it only happens with that pdf can you attach it to the report? Does it works fine with another new user created on your system? Thanks.

Here's a test case showing the bug. Search for "test". You'll get the result in the main text, but not the result in the section heading. Acrobat Reader finds both.
