It's _replace_ in selection (Replace All Scope), so it does *not*
affect normal searches. And to me it _does_ make sense. For example
when I want to (un)escape stuff in a string.

I get that a lot, but to me that would be rather destructive, and Apple
has cmd-e as part of the AHIG to do exactly this thing! It's Edit ->
Find -> Use Selection for Find in the menus, and it works in _all_
Cocoa applications (probably also most Carbon), so get used to using
it! :) It also works across applications, so you can e.g. press cmd-e
in your browser, and then cmd-g in TextMate to find what you'd selected
in the browser.
Kind regards Allan
