screenshot of setup
When doing a Search and Replace All, with Regular expressions and Current selection only selected, after Replace All, Current selection is deselected
Steps to reproduce:
1. Select column of text with valid entries
2. Select Find and Replace
3. Put in a regex: ([0-9]+) replacing with $1;GPS.
4. Select Regular expressions and Current selection only
5. Search and replace
Current behavior: (Sometimes) after replace happens and I select the next column to do the operation on, the "Current selection only" becomes deselected. So the whole document starts replacing any number string (which can crash Calc).
Expected behavior: Maintain selected preferences in Find and Replace
Notes: Not consistent behavior. Sometimes it works and other times not. Try is several times first?
Operating System: Mac OS X
Version: 126.96.36.199 release

So the Current selection becomes deselected when making new selections, not doing the find and replace. So to reproduce the issue, just make Current selection be selected, then select different areas of the document.
I got consistent behavior with this simple steps:
1. Open attached file
2. Select any cell ranges
3. Find and Replace (ctrl-H)
4. Click 'Other Options' and verify that "Current selection only" ticked
5. Select any cell ranges outside previous selection
Reproduced with LO 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124 - Ubuntu 12.04 x86
AOO 3.4.1 and 4.1.0 doesn't select "Current selection only" by default, but the check box greyed out with above steps. So this behavior likely inherited from OOO.
