Via #42, this bug has existed since ST2. I closed that issue as a duplicate because this one has more detailed reproduction steps.

Basically, quick_skip_next always thinks the current search is the lowest selected region, which goes terribly wrong if you wrapped around the end of the file. Because this behavior is so unexpected, I consider it to be major because it may cause you to remove/edit lines you didn't actually intend to by modifiying the selections in an unexpected way.
