after ctrl+F the content of the search box is not selected

Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open a file with some text.
2. Hit Ctrl+F
3. Write "foo" in the search box
4. Browse the search results (either with the arrow buttons or with Ctrl+G
5. Go on editing and forget about searching
6. Hit Ctrl+F again
7. Type "bar"

Expected: When you hit Ctrl+F the contents of the search box should be selected, so when you type the new word "bar", the formerly written word "foo" should be replaced and you should be searching for "bar".

Observed: About 50% of the times the expected behavior is observed. Other times, apparently RANDOMLY, the search box is focused when you hit ctrl+F but the content is not selected, so what you type is APPENDED to whatever you had typed minutes or hours ago, and now you are searching for "foobar".
