Is "Find Currently Evaluating Cell" really "Find Topmost Cell in Evaluation Queue"?

1. Create a notebook with 4 input cells, all containing Pause[4].
2. Press Ctrl+A to select everything.
3. Press Shift+Enter to evaluate everything.
4. Wait until (say) 2 of the cells have finished evaluating.
5. Select the first input cell and press Shift+Enter. Now there are 3 input
cells in the evaluation queue.
6. Select the "Find Currently Evaluating Cell" option from the Evaluation
menu. (Press Alt, V, F.) The first cell in the notenook is selected. This
cell is not currently evaluating. It is actually the last cell in the
evaluation queue.
 
In general, it seems that "Find Currently Evaluating Cell" really finds the
topmost (as in, reading notebooks from top to bottom) cell with the property
that it lies anywhere in the evaluation queue. This is annoying when you
actually want to find the currently evaluating cell.
