I am having the same problem or nearly the same problem (I think)  
that Sergei is having.

(1) I perform a search in TS 2.08 using the Ogrekit panel. The search  
is completed as would be expected.

(2) I dismiss the find panel window, which disappears as would be  

(3) A short while later, the find panel reappears by itself, and I  
dismiss it. It seems to function as it should, however.

(4) A short while later still, the find panel reappears by itself,  
and cannot be dismissed, and is insensitive to clicking and typing.

There are no other problems with TS, such as crashing, slowness,  
etc., etc.

I use BD 1.2.1 (v185), and I tried the suggestion above; the problem  

Any help would be appreciated . . .
