Pressing ESC to exit Find will jump to a different location in the file after you've already placed your cursor in the file...
So I press cntrl + i to execute a find. I start typing into the find dialog and the location in my file jumps around as I type (this is normal so far). Instead of committing to the find, I decide to click directly into the file (i.e. I highlight something). I then press ESC, and my location in the file jumps to somewhere else. It seems like if you click into the file, that means you're committed to that location and pressing ESC shouldn't relocate you.
BTW, best editor ever!!! I was an avid UE32 user, then a friend at work showed me ST... Never going back!! :)
