Hi Andy,

Does C-s, M-y do what you want?

This calls up a search and pastes your previous copy into it.  I have
C-s bound to isearch-forward, which may be non-default.  C-s might be
a normal (non-incremental) search, in which case, C-s, C-y might do
the trick?

Alternatively, "M-x occur" is useful, it opens another window listing
which lines a particular phrase (well, regexp) occurs in.  If you
like it, bind a key for that too :-)

I also have a key bound to mark and copy the word/signalname/etc that
is under the cursor, all in one go. which is quite handy for these
sorts of things...
