Again: I don't like the left-right jump of the minibuffer caused by
that.  If there really is a need for that kind of information, can't
we put this in the mode-line lighter of Isearch mode?

Like Isearch/Wrapped, Isearch/X-Node...

Then the information is available in case of need, but does not take
up room and concentration in the minibuffer.
