I have trouble finding the 'found' text. The line hilight doesn't
seem to become active until an arrow key (or something) is pressed to
make the 'found' hilight go away. I find this incredibly annoying,
personally. I'd like the line hilight to take effect immediately
after a find while the found text was still hilighted.
