Just wanted to find out if people using RH2017 are experiencing this problem (I'm on RH11, Multiscreen HTML5).
Conditions: Output contains dropdowns with Twisties enabled, skin/screen layout includes Highlight Search Results checkbox.
1. Search for a word that occurs inside a dropdown.
2. Select the Highlight Search Results checkbox.
3. Click the search results link for the topic with a dropdown.
Can you confirm that the twisty image is not "twisting" when the dropdown is opened because of search highlighting? That is, it is still in the "closed" position, even though the dropdown text is displayed?
e.g. In the image below:
I've quickly tested Multiscreen HTML5 and Webhelp in RH11 and see the same behaviour in both outputs.
Okay, what you have demonstrated is that for you, when you search, the results aren't showing the proper image.
What about when you click the link? Do the twisties work okay then?
My gut says we will discover this is a bug in the programming.
Yep, once I click the dropdown link the images twist, but that one remains "backwards" which is very disconcerting. (I'm kinda hoping it's fixed in 2017, but I feel like it probably isn't... )
Are you using the method on my site and Willam's or the method built into RoboHelp?

I tested in the sample project (for the screenshot) so I think that's just Robohelp's method.
I've checked and we are using Willam's twisty script only for the Expand All Links single button method. The twisties themselves are the Robohelp implementation.
With that out of the way, then I agree with Rick that it looks like a bug. You know what's coming.
Please follow this link to report bugs and request features. The more people who do so, the higher it gets prioritised.
Post the link to that bug in this thread and others can vote for it.
