This is a normal behaviour: any selected text is replaced by what you type.
This is handy if you want to replace a text by another, you have not to 
select the text, delete it and insert the new text.

I think this is general in all text editor (I just checked different 
editors under Windows.)

One thing which could be done is the move from the pdf to the source at 
the right place, but without selecting (highlighting) the text.
Could other comment on this.
