    That answers the first and third question.  What about the second?

Sure it is safe--that's what immediate_quit will do in the signal handler.

    then try to interrupt the search with C-g.  In my case at least it
    doesn't work.  Maybe it's because immediate_quit doesn't work, or maybe it's
    because immediate_quit is not used in this case, but in any case I find this
    behavior to be a problem.

Is the immediate_quit mechanism working at all
in your copy?
