I am trying to search, i.e. invoke isearch-forward. I hold down left
control, and press S. (No shift). Emacs does not react. When I do C-h k
C-s, the minibuffer message 'Describe key (or click or menu item)' stays
in the minibuffer. If I do M-x global-set-key C-s, the message 'Set key
globally:' stays in the minibuffer.

When I use remote desktop to other computers, C-s does work.

Other control keys work, so I have bound isearch-forward to C-\.
