The keystroke recording/playback does not handle variable search strings very well. I personally never use it.
Also, while I doubt this problem has been fixed in 6.11/6.12, I would like to point out again that only 6.11/6.12 are currently support. All 6.10 users are eligible for 6.11/6.12.
All such things are better handled using the macro language.
