I am also seeing unusual behavior. Now maybe it is supposed to work
this way (I don't recall it being like this before moving to my MBP),
but unless I have the regular expressions option checked, it won't
find (La)TeX commands, i.e., if I search for \frac, it won't find it.
It was also case sensitive until I turned on regular expressions and
the ignore case was ignored.

A colleague with a MBP sees the same behavior.

Does checking the "Regular Expressions" box in the find panel correct
what you are seeing?
