New find-bar usability issue

I like using incremental find for searching for text occurrences and identifying the context (i.e. method) in which the text lies... In the new find-bar, I can't use step 4 after step 3 (Alt + Q only works after I close the search box):

Use-case: Searching for a text occurrence while looking for context...
1. Ctrl + S
2. Type in search work
3. Alt + S / Alt + R start cycling through occurrences..
4. Alt + Q
Repeat 3 and 4...

I realize that I can do Esc, Esc and then do steps 3 and 4, but it would be nice if Alt + Q were supported within the incremental search...

JetBrains is usually quick in fixing features that once worked, but are broken in a new version.
It will help if you file an issue at http://www.jetbrains.net/jira
(You'll have to register to create an issue. File the issue in Project "IDEA Feedback".
Two of my "Find-bar" issues have already been fixed for the next build (reg ex search and search history).
