With two long documents selected in the binder, one of which is visible in the editor,
Do: Edit / Find / Project Search
In the drop-down, select 'Search Binder Selection Only'.
In the Search box's text window, write the letter 'a'
- the search correctly returns the two documents, and each letter 'a' is highlighted in yellow in the editor
Now add a letter 't' to the text window
- the search shows no results, and each instance of 'at' is highlighted in yellow in the editor

This is still a problem in 1.7.0.6.

Set it up like this, with 'Search Binder Selection Only' selected in the search drop-down:

Add an 'a' to the search box:

Add another letter: - and there are no results

Sorry I missed replying to this earlier; I've filed it. For now you can clear the search and close the search results by pressing Esc, then type the new search term to run that on the binder selection.
