[OS X TeX] TeXshop find and replace dialog

Hi all!

the TeXshop find and replace dialog is very nice and quite
flexible.  However, I find it a bit annoying that, upon
changing the text input field which gets focus, the text is
not selected.  When I invoke the dialog with Apple-F the
text to search is selected, however if I hit the tab key
and some text is already present in the replace field, this
is not selected.  The usual behaviour of mac apps is that
this text is selected so that you can start typing right
away and replace it.  Instead, I almost always have to hit
Apple-A.   Apart from the fact that it does not seem to
follow Apple's HGI (I am not sure it is written, but this
was the behavious since the time of System 1!) I find this
quite annoying.   What's the opinion?

Apart from this, I find TeXshop (with TL2005) really great.
