Steps to reproduce:
1. Open the Find & Replace Dialog (control-H).
2. Enter text in the "Search for" and "Replace for" fields.
3. Alternately click in the "Search for" and "Replace for" fields.
Clicking in "Search for" selected the current text.
Clicking in "Replace for" does not select the current text.
Both fields select the existing text when clicking in the box.
Note: Selecting the fields via keyboard shortcuts ("s" and "p") or via Tab and Shift-Tab select the text for both fields.
