[MonoDevelop] Searching

I am looking at the problem with searching in MD and have a few questions as
to how it should work.

Suppose you have the following text. | denotes the cursor position.

A A A| A

Searching for A should return the 4th A. Subsequent searches should then
return 1st, 2nd and 3rd A. Should searching again return the 4th A or return
not found?

In other words, how should we define search wrapping? Should it just
continuously say that it found an A or stop when reaching an A already

E.g. gedit keeps returning the next A forever when search wrapping is
enabled. Also should search wrapping be configurable as it is in gedit?

Guess this is it for now. I would like some input here. :-)
