This is expected IE behavior. When IE transfers focus out of an iframe, all selections/display of selections are gone. The Editor catches the focus change and records the selection data before IE clears it, but that's the limit of what can be done. When focus is restored to the editor (the dialog closed), the editor will restore the selections.

This is a limitation of IE's selection/Iframe model. Nothing we can do. Other editors, such as FCK and TinyMCE have the same issue.
