While we need to think more about enabling the dwim option by default,
there is one problem in implementing such option - the additional visual clue
in the Isearch message about the search type is not displayed immediately
after typing C-s on a filename column.  The message gets updated only after
typing more keys in Isearch mode.

This is because the code that modifies the Isearch message in Dired is
executed via `isearch-mode-hook', but this hook is called in `isearch-mode'
after `isearch-update' that displays the Isearch message.  So currently
it is impossible to modify the Isearch message before displaying it.

One solution is to change the call order in `isearch-mode' from

  (run-hooks 'isearch-mode-hook)


  (run-hooks 'isearch-mode-hook)

Does someone see a bad effect of such change?
