This is complicated.  Ideally, the Follow Mode windows should be
synchronised in FM's post-command-hook, not isearch's.  It is not
isearch's job to realign windows.  follow-post-command-hook both realigns
windows and choses an appropriate window to put point in.  We should let

What I'm proposing is to schedule the timer always, and do the checks
(for whether we need to start a new lazy highlight loop) in the function
that the timer triggers.  The advantage is that when the timer triggers,
redisplay will already have taken place[*], and thus we can use
`window-start' and `window-end' without forcing an artificial redisplay
with "(sit-for 0)".

[*] and an appropriate FM window will have been selected by FM's

The disadvantage is that stale lazy highlights are erased after
isearch-lazy-highlight-initial-delay, not immediately, as at present.
I'm not sure if this is really a disadvantage or not.  In my scrappy
patch last night, I attempted to ameliorate this "problem" by repeating
(most of) the tests in the command-loop bit.
