Here, F3 does work, but only if I gave the workarea focus, which is not
so apparent if you use the dialog. The working procedure is:

1. Ctrl-F
2. Enter search string
3. Hit Enter to fin first occurrence
4. Click into workarea OR close dialog
5. Hit F3 to find next occurrences

I suspect 4. is the crucial missing step.

I'll check if we can do something to avoid this unintuive extra step.
