However, there is a difference in how MM behaves if (a) the message is being viewed in the Viewer Window (in which case Command-F works as expected) versus (b) the message is in its own window (in which case Command-F does what Ravi has mentioned).

Ed, you're absolutely right; I just reproduced it.  And it doesn't matter whether you use the keyboard shortcut or the 'Edit->Find->Find...' menu item, it still collapses the window as described.
