Dear developers,

I have noticed that now ^W always starts a forward search by calling the
`do_search_forward()` function in 'src/search.c', which clears the
`BACKWARDS_SEARCH` flag. This is, however, not the case on ^\, which
honors the current status of this flag, which could be altered
accidentally by ^Q or M-Up. Sometimes I get confused by the
'out-of-thin-air' backwards replacing flag.

I think the behavior of these function should match in this case, and
here is a patch for it.

Best regards,
