Yeah; the node-name info is gratuitous anyway - - the node name is
already right there in the modeline about .5 cm above the i-search

Something like:

   Global info I-search:  foo

[Maybe "Cross-node" would be better than "Global"?]

or whatever would be even more similar to the existing "Wrapped", get
the point across well, and address your concern about the prompt size
bouncing around excessively.
