    Indeed.  That it doesn't interrupt isearch is not a surprise: isearch is
    implemented quite differently.  emacsclient interrupts recursive edits and

When you say "interrupts", what precisely does that mean?
Does that mean it does its job while you're in the minibuffer?
Or does it exit the minibuffer?

It is a bad thing for it to forcibly exit the minibuffer.

                 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.

Use of Emacsclient should not interfere with an isearch!
