Sorry, but I don't really understand.

There are several parts to this bug report.  I don't know
what "the first part" refers to.

I don't want to have to customize anything (other than a
new specific `isearch-allow-scroll' value) to work around
the problem.

In the Emacs release I have (26.1) there is no such value
for `search-exit-option'.  And it's not clear to me why
I would want to change the value of this option.  (I don't
even understand the (Emacs 26) doc string of the option:
"Non-nil means random control characters terminate
incremental search."  Random control characters?

I think I described the problem pretty clearly.  I don't
find your description of the solution (or solutions, to
parts apparently) clear.  What I mean is I don't understand
the proposed solution(s), to start with.
