Unless I'm missing something, 'F' could be limited to search an visible 
rat lines layer only, so one can continue with this trick by 
hiding/unhiding this layer. To get more of the current behaviour, this 
layer could be hidden automatically by the search for shorts procedure.

I've tested with the last release, 'F' apparently takes hidden rat lines 
into accout just as much as visible ones.
