When doing a backwards find the first character of every line in the unit is not matched, however, sometimes it is matched with certain Delphi Identifiers.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create New Project (File - New - Application)
2. Add new line in unit at top with text "//test" (excluding quotes)
3. Place cursor at end of unit
3. Open find dialog
4. Do a backward search for "//test" (excluding quotes) - case sensitive: off, whole words: off, regular expressions: off, direction: backward, scope: global, origin: from cursor
5. Search will not find the text at top of unit because the first "/" is not found

If you search for the "interface" however it will be found (but other search strings will fail)?

I can reproduce this with D7 but not with BDS2006 so it seems to have been fixed. Since only R&D is supposed to close reports with fixed, I'm closing this with Cannot reproduce. This is meant as "Cannot reproduce with latest version", so please don't take offense.
