`isearch-repeat-forward' is not an entry point to the incremental search:
it doesn't activate isearch mode neither deactivates it.  IIUC, it was
never intended for non-incremental search, so it doesn't guarantee to
work when isearch mode is not active.

If you want to find the next occurrence without highlighting it
and without activating isearch mode, you can use the command

isearch-repeat-forward is interactive, which is why I thought it would be a decent entry point. It works beautifully, except when you switch buffers and when nonsensical text is highlighted.

Something like (search-forward isearch-string) works too, as long as the match is visualized. That's what I'm doing now; thanks for pointing out this (better) variant.
