In normal isearch operation (i.e. not in the minibuffer), typing C-s
immediately moves point to the next occurrence of the search string
and highlights it.

Having a delay in the minibuffer between typing C-s and seeing the search
string highlighted, or requiring to type another key to exit the delay,
would be a nuisance.
