Sorry, I still have not figured out how to limit the search for ".*"
only to file names.  Maybe there is no good solution.  For example,
to limit operations to file names only, Wdired uses such kludge
as `wdired-downcase-word' and `wdired-upcase-word' to skip non-file
parts of Dired buffers.

For a regexp ".*" to match file names only this might require a new
regexp feature for specifying text-properties in regexps similar to
`\sCODE' for syntax classes, or `\cC' for character categories,
or character classes like `[:ascii:]'.  So for example, a regexp like
"^[#dired-filename#]*$" would match only the text with text-properties

I wonder why do you want isearch to open hidden dired details when you use
`dired-hide-details-mode' with the intention to hide them from isearch?
