It seems this is the most reasonable default behavior.
But I also think it would be too annoying to fail before
leaving every Info node.  It would be better to fail only
in the first Info node where isearch was started.  Of course,
this doesn't preclude creating at least four different options
for the `Info-isearch-search' variable:

- never fail (current behavior)
- fail only in the node where isearch was started (proposed default)
- fail in every node visited by isearch (somebody may like this)
- fail and wrap to the beginning of the current node (old behavior)
