I have tried the new build and the C-s / C-r do indeed not set the  

Command-f does not set the region to the first match found. Is this  

Command-g/G does set the region, but repeated use does not extend the  
region (as C-s C-s did in 1.4). I don't know what the intention was  
here, so it could be right or wrong depending. If the behavior in the  
nightly-build is correct, then the original behavior in 1.4 is  
probably a bug, i.e. using C-s C-s should simply set the region to be  
the next match rather than extending the region to include the  
previous region and everything between that and the next match
