Not sure if this is doable (or even sensible, useful), but maybe make it 
so that if the cursor keys are hit, they walk through the search string 
-> if that is possible, else, search is aborted. So if you're at the end 
of the search string and you hit arrow-right it aborts, but if you hit 
arrow-left it moves the cursor left in the search string and lets you edit.
So basically if you hit an arrow key which will not make the cursor move 
within the search string it aborts.
Not sure what the up/down keys should do though..
