Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-utils

The search functionality ignores the cursor in regards of starting point.

Explanation and how to reproduce:
1. I search for a term which appears several time in the log file
2. Lets assume I reach a section where the term appears so often that I want to skip the section and point the cursor below the section to continue my search there.
3. I press the search button again but the search continues at the position where it stopped before (here: at the beginning of the section) and ignores my cursor.

Instead the search should continue at the position where I pointed the cursor to.

Thanks for the report, it has been some time without any response or feedback in this bug report and we are wondering if this is still an issue for you with the latest release of Ubuntu the Natty Narwhal, May you please test with that version and comment back if you're still having or not the issue? Please have a look at http://www.ubuntu.com/download to know how to install that version. Thanks in advance and sorry for the late response.
