I hadn't actually tried it on X.  ;-(

I have now, though.  The difference seems to be (with C-h l):

tty:   C-u C-@
X:     C-u C-SPC

C-@ has an entry in local-function-key-map, which transforms it into the
vector [67108896] i.e. [2^26 + 32].  Because of this l-f-k-map entry, it
gets caught by the first arm of the cond in `isearch-other-meta-char',
where there's no handling for prefix-arg.

In the X case, C-SPC drops through to some arm where the prefix-arg does
get set.  Probably.

It's too late for me to concentrate fully on this.
