First two elements of search-ring shown twice in minibuffer when using M
First two elements of search-ring shown twice in minibuffer when using M-p multiple times?

I'm using Emacs 22.1 compiled under MacOS X and Windoze XP from the
EMACS_22_1 tag in the cvs repository for quite some time now and both
of 'em work great, wouldn't want to live without them :-). However,
there's a minor bug that really bugs me. It is reproducible on both
platforms without any customizations, i.e. my .emacs file moved out
of the way. It goes like this:
Start a fresh emacs, then C-s 1 RET, C-s 2 RET, C-s 3 RET to search
for "1", "2" and "3". The value of variable search-ring is ("3" "2"
"1") now. So far, so good. Now, let's try to search for "1" again
using M-p (isearch-ring-retreat) in isearch-mode. A C-s C-s searches
for "3", now a M-p and you're searching for "2", but the next M-p
does not search for "1", but for "3" again! And another M-p brings
you to "2". This is what I noticed on both platforms: After the
initial C-s C-s sequence, the minibuffer shows "I-search: 3", the
cursor is still in your buffer and the tool bar as well as the menu
bar remain unchanged. After the first M-p the minibuffer displays "I-
search: 2" and the cursor is at the end of the minibuffer. However,
the tool bar and the menu bar still remain unchanged. I guess this is
part of the problem, because the second M-p finally adapts the tool
bar and the menu bar to the fact that the cursor is in the minibuffer
now, i.e. the Minibuf menu item appears and a few icons are grayed
out. Unfortunately, the second M-p also jumps back to the first
element of search-ring instead of showing the third element. So to
reach the third element of search-ring, you have to press M-p four
times instead of twice :-(. I hope I'm not the only one having this
problem and that there's a fix available :-).
Have a nice weekend,
PS: The frame's title is incorrect after the first M-p as well,
noticeable if you have a (setq frame-title-format "Emacs: %b") in
your .emacs file.
PPS: isearch-forward-regexp has the same problem :-(.
