    Stefan's proposal is to translate a character by
    translation-table-for-input in read_char ().  This is a
    generic solution, but it makes read_char () return different
    character depending on the buffer-file-coding-system of the
    current buffer, which may or may not cause anther problem.

    My proposal is to translate a character by
    translate-table-for-input in isearch-process-search-char.
    This is a limitted solution only for the current problem.

Suppose we use the latter solution.  We probably would want to use it
in other places as well, but which ones?  Can you suggest a rule for
programmers to decide whether to translate the result from read-char
thru translate-table-for-input, and when not to?

Could you look thru the calls to read-char in Emacs, and see which
ones clearly should do this translation, which ones clearly should
not, and which ones would work right either with or without the
