Hmm... indeed, I can reproduce it.  Not sure why, yet.

Indeed.  That it doesn't interrupt isearch is not a surprise: isearch is
implemented quite differently.  emacsclient interrupts recursive edits and
minibuffers, but isearch uses neither (it basically temporarily switches
major-mode instead).

I don't think we will be able to find a patch that can break out of isearch
for Emacs-22 (it's probably going to be too big a change).  But the fact
that not only it doesn't break out of isearch, but additionally the buffer
isn't displayed at all looks more serious.

Good point.  I'll change the text to "Windowing system distributor".
