OK. I'm putting both lists in Cc again, then. I think we're getting at
the end of this subthread (with a positive outcome), and I'd find it
awkward to leave people on these lists with unanswered questions (but I
recognize it's a bit off topic for the texlive list, sorry).

Yes, that was the case.

IIRC, the confirmation dialog did appear over the search dialog, but the
mouse pointer was elsewhere from the beginning of the experiment (and
wasn't magically moved by the WM). I did the whole test with the
keyboard only, and wasn't "lucky" enough to have the search dialog box
appear right under the mouse pointer!
