It depends on what "other things" you do. If you start any other command (even without finishing it) or leave the File Window and come back, Active Mode Spell Search resets like you want. This includes every command shown on the File Window menu. IOW, virtually anything other than a navigation or function key.

With that said, it does appear there has been a change since 158. In that version even a navigation key caused Active Mode Spell Search to reset. If this was not an intentional change due to a request (or Kim's preference) then it may be a bug.
