When TextMate is running, I still can use Find in another program, such
as Mail or Safari. In which case Regular Expression remains selected,
but the string is not what was entered. I believe that the right
behavior is to keep the setting for Regular Expressions. Alternatively,
a consistent approach would be to drop it every time the clipbroad gets
a new value not from the manual input with RE set.
So, the current behavior of TextMate is almost what I want (and does
not cope well with the idea that literal find should switch RE off)
except for one case -- when I restart TextMate. Fixing it to never keep
RE or to always keep RE makes it consistent, and the former makes it
less convenient for me.
What about Command-Option-F /Command-Option-G for regular expression
search/replace; not interacting with Find clipboard, and just
Option-F/Option-G for literal search/replace?
