I also reported the find-again bug but about 10 years ago.
I love "again" function that is a long life Smalltalk-80's feature.
I'm very happy to hear the bug was fixed.

> 3) then uses any combinations of cmd+g, j, or J to conduct global
> search and replace operations.
> cmd+g finds the next occurrence of the original text.
> cmd+j (first press) presents the next occurrence of the
> original text, scrolling it into view and selecting it.
> cmd+j (subsequent press) with the original text selected,
> cmd+j now effects the replacement and then finds and selects the next
> occurrence of it in the text.
> cmd+J (with Shift key) replaces all further occurrences of
> the original text to the replacement text.

> used in conjunction with cmd+g. Now, it can.
