I think I can tell you why. isearch is a mode, and it terminates itself automatically on every command it doesn't recognize. Assigning keys that way is the same as using a keyboard macro, which inserts an additional command in the queue, causing isearch to exit.

Here's my work-around:

(defun do-what-backspace-does () (interactive) (call-interactively (key-binding (kbd "<backspace>")))) (global-set-key "\C-h" 'do-what-backspace-does)

I think it should work in your case, too. regards, Nikolaj Schumacher
