What is the expected behaviour of the card?
Draw three, then discard either a land or two cards, regardless of replacement effects applied to the cards being drawn.

What is the actual behaviour of the card?
If dredge cards (e.g. Grave-Shell Scarab) are used to replace some or all of the three draws, Compulsive Research can sometimes finish resolving without requiring a discard. The "discard land or two cards" prompt is still shown, but choosing one of the options causes the game to continue without prompting for a card to be discarded.

Some sequences of dredging and drawing seem to consistently lead to either bugged or normal behaviour. Dredge/dredge/dredge and draw/draw/dredge consistently avoid a discard, and dredge/draw/draw and draw/dredge/draw consistently lead to discarding as expected.

Reddit suggests that Sindbad might also be affected. Can someone test?

From NARFNra on Discord.

yeah i went ahead and tested some more
w/o dredge cards they work fine and say either "discard a card" (if you drew a nonland, and only the nonland is choosable) or "no cards to choose in NAME's hand" (if you drew a land)
but if you have a dredge creature in your graveyard after the "choose a replacement effect" message pops up and you click cancel it just lets you draw
whereas if you use the dredge it says "no cards to choose in NAME's hand"
and happens with both fa'adiyah and sindbad
