Sorry, I have forgotten to reply to this mail when I
installed a fix.

Now, isearch translates a typed character by
translation-table-for-input to a character that fits with
the coding system of the buffer.   So, the above search
should succeed.

But, please note that if the buffer contains a character
that can't be encoded by the buffer's coding system, isearch
can't find such a character.  For instance, if you do
(insert #xf24), which inserts EuroSign of iso-8859-15, in
iso-8859-16 buffer, isearch can't find it.

We can't improve this situation in the current Emacs 22
without huge amount of nontrivial changes.
