I agree.  Whether or not isearch is terminated or suspended possibly
should be made dependent on the setting of
enable-recursive-minibuffers: this is the setting that indicates
whether the user can be considered comfortable with suspended
minibuffer usage.

It definitely is a mistake for Emacs to do nothing visibly:
emacsclient is not something called asynchronously, but as a direct
result of a user action and/or requiring user attention.
