Oops, it seems that my brain is seriously damaged :-(.  I
have already installed such a change (perhaps accoding to
your decision).

The problem is that the change took care only for a typed
character.  If isearch-string is set from a (possibly
different) buffer (e.g. by C-s C-w), the translation doesn't

So, I've just installed the attached change.  But, there
still exists a case that isearch fails.  For instance, if
your buffer's buffer-file-coding-system is iso-8859-2, and
you somehow insert a-acute of iso-8859-1, isearch won't be
able to find that a-acute.  The fix for that case is very
difficult in Emacs 22.
