Double clicking Find/Replace button on Linux does 3 actions, not 2

Find/Replace has a really annoying bug on Linux - if you click too quickly it jumps an extra match. So if you click Find it finds the 1st match, then if you click Find twice quickly it should go to the 3rd match, but instead it goes to the 4th!


Incredibly annoying when trying to find/replace some matches in a file but not all. Still a problem in the latest ST3 build!

I run ST2 and ST3 in Ubuntu (maybe 10% of the time) without encountering this problem so I wonder how much this is ST and how much is KDE' or Gnome' or whatever windowing engine being finicky? Just wondering not trying to allocate blame or defend anyone, I don't know enough to do either.


As part of the research, does the same issue arise if you use the keyboard shortcut to 'Find Next'?

You should be able to hit that as fast as click the mouse. Can you get the issue to present that way?

No, using the keyboard is fine. It's only when clicking the buttons. I'm just using the standard Ubuntu setup (version 12.10), nothing special. I don't have any similar issues clicking buttons in any other programs so it doesn't feel like a system issue, but maybe there is some setting somewhere causing the problem.
