[isabelle] Funny font metrics in the Search and Replace dialog [Isabelle2016-RC2]

The font metrics in the Search and Replace dialog has been funny for a while, and this is still the case with RC2's versions of jdk, jedit and fonts.  In the attached screenshot, the entire text is selected but the last 2 1/2 characters are not covered by the box.

MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Early 2015) and OS X 10.10.5.

Not sure this is something under our control, though.
