bug#6362: Emacs command `dired-isearch-filenames-regexp' cause CPU usage 100%

Yes, I expect that query-replace will rename file names start with
`f'. As the search process just matched the file names, it is a simple
thought that `^' means the beginning of the file name.
If we could add some special syntax properties to the white-space
before the file name, it is possible to match the file names start
with `f'. For instance, type :
dired-isearch-filenames-regexp RET \sxf RET
At here, the `x' means the special syntax class.
It's just my random thought. At most times, a white-space can solve my
problem, like `dired-isearch-filenames-regexp RET SPC f RET'.
