Search works, but Search & Replace fails, with subscripts

The Mathematica 6 search feature can locate expressions containing
subscripts. The method (Windows version) is to press Ctrl+F, then select a
subscripted expression and press Ctrl+E (this step copies the selection into
the "Search:" field). Now repeatedly pressing "Find Next" results in
Mathematica correctly locating all instances of the selected subscripted
expression.

When the "Replace", "Replace All", or "Replace and Find Next" buttons are
used, however, no replacement is made. Please see the following screenshot:

Any ideas on how to Search & Replace for subscripted expressions?
