"I don't think this is possible with the current cursor handing."

This sentence confuses me, since we are talking about *changing* the cursor handling.  Did you mean "desirable" instead of "possible"?  

What if on the last find of several, that when dismissing the dialog, after
what in my case always seems to be about 3 or more searches, the mouse
cursor only THEN jumps TO the cross hair position?

If you cannot do this, I still prefer the cursor staying on the dialog, even
if it means that the cross hairs jump to the cursor at the dialog
dismissal.  Hard to believe, but I am annoyed that much by the moving
cursor.  I can always move the cross hairs back to the item, now that I know
where it is.
