Word X: Click-through that doesn’t work

Go to Word X, open the Find/Replace dialog, and then switch to another application, in ORDER to put Word X’s windows in the background:

Now hover with your mouse pointer over the Find/Replace dialog’s Close button. It turns red, as it should, because the Close button supports click-through for all windows in Mac OS X. This means that you are supposed to be able to close this window without HAVING to switch back to Word X first. A single click on the Close button should close the Find/Replace dialog, without switching to Word.

The problem is that it doesn’t.

Am I surprised? Of course I am. What do you mean? Microsoft Word, buggy? No way! I am shocked.
