I'm using LibreOffice Version (Build ID:
5464147a081647a250913f19c0715bca595af2f) on Ubuntu 12.04 (LTS).

If the Find Toolbar is neither docked or displayed, and the Ctrl+F command
is used to display it, the cursor is not placed in the search panel as I
would expect (i.e. why would one call up the Find panel if not to search for

If the Find Toolbar is docked or displayed, the cursor moves to the dialog
as expected when Ctrl+F is pressed or the menu option is chosen. Thus, if
you elect not to have the dialog displayed as a matter of course (I like to
devote as much space as possible to the document I'm working on), and you
forget to press Ctrl+F TWICE when calling it up, you end up typing the
search term into the document itself, which is annoying.

It's actually been this way for a while, but I held off asking until I had
loaded 4.0.5.

I suppose this behavior might be a matter of opinion, but it seems like it
might be a bug to me. Any Comments?

Thanks in advance for any comments.
