What do you mean by disabled? Do you mean you cannot type into them?

This is quite baffling. I have no idea what could be causing the issue.
Textadept is not using any special text boxes in the Find & Replace pane.
All it does is call `gtk_widget_show()` and `gtk_widget_hide()` as
necessary[1]. Can you use any other text entry widgets just fine? (e.g.
Search -> Jump to, Tools -> Select Command, etc.)
