'Search current file' does not take cursor to the found word/term

Steps to reproduce

Type Cmd-F
Type your search term
Type Return
Type Esc

Expected result

Cursor should be on the search term that was found, so I can start typing there.

Actual result

Cursor completely vanishes, is not in the pane any more.
I have to click into the edit pane to get a visible cursor.

Basically, I expect that with ‘Cmd-F’ I can go to the place in the file where the search term is found, using the keyboard alone.
Instead, I have to click on the search term with the mouse to get there.
