Description

Unlike most tool windows in Visual Studio 2010, the Find and Replace window does not properly remember its size and position. Each time the window opens, it is a little wider than the previous time. Eventually, the window becomes so wide that it exceeds the width of the monitor. This is annoying, and makes it impossible to arrange tool windows into layouts.

Dear Microsoft fellows,

it's very important to create a hotfix or publish a workaround to solve this resizing problem for Find and Replace window.
This current Find and Replace window in Visual Studio 2010 is becoming annoying.

The Find Dialog growing is a known issue that we will be fixing for SP1.
