Wrap around problem (find on page)

I've turned wrap around on (did it in about:config, then with the actual button)
It seems to work fine on a lot of pages.
However, for some pages, it just doesn't. These seem to be "complicated" pages with sections (eg a section for comments).

eg on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_tennant
(Yay Doctor Who)
Searching, for example, "parody" won't return a result if you are 'below' the instance of the word.
Actually...searching anything then holding down the enter key just makes it hit the bottom of the page.

Any ideas?

@ Bear

I tried both KM 1.6.0a3 and 1.5.4 and the 'Wrap Around' worked for me. After you start 'Find in Page' do you see that 'Wrap Around' is on? It should have a border around it and have a white background.

Yes, it is on.
Can you try on page [if you didn't]?
Scroll to the bottom, click on something, then search for 'parody'.

["click on something" to 'set the mark' as it were']

Sorry for the many posts but, another bit of info:
If the focus is set after the last instance of the word, and I try to find, it won't find it at all. Find previous finds it, though.

This is only on Wikipedia. If I run a google search and 'find' a word, it will zoom up and down the page if I hold enter.

I have the same problem using the browser 'SeaMonkey', but not with 'FireFox'. Odd. I may have tweaked a setting in any of the browsers configs though.

Or it's because James is probably using KM16alpha with gecko1.9, as I've read just in the last days somewhere, IIRC ;-)
I haven't tried the page myself, but sounds like the reason may very well be the version of the gecko engine. Your FF most likely is FF3.x with gecko1.9, and Seamonkey probably gecko 1.8.x, like KM154...

Oops, just reading again and seeing he tried KM154 too, hmm... *scratchinghead* ;-)

Yes, you are right, this seem a bug in find function, because can't to do "wrap around" in some complex web pages.

I think the find function can't detected the end of the web page to start the find again from the top of web page.
