Created attachment 165675 [details]
Test document with steps to reproduce bug included in comment box

Test document attached - or use a multi-page document with at least one comment.

1.  Place cursor in comment box.
2.  Find-and-replace (Ctrl-H)
3.  Search for anything that is on another page.
4.  Click cursor in the found page (e.g., on the found word, or elsewhere in that page).

Actual behavior:  Cursor is returned to the page where the comment box appears.

Expected behavior:  Cursor remains where clicked.

Additional information.

1.  The cursor returns on a line a few lines from the top of the comment box and seems take the same horizontal position in the canvas where clicked.

2. Related to bug 121478, but not exactly the same behavior. In that case, ESC, out of the Find-Replace dialog returns the cursor to the comment box. In this case, the cursor returns to the document page with the comment.
