That did it, thanks!

Line up/down would not cause any limitations.  You're right though that 
character forward/back would prevent the edits to the search string.  
It is a tradeoff -- I see the value of canceling the search with those 
keys being better than the ability to edit the search string with them. 
  My argument pretty much comes down to "That's how emacs does it"  
though. :)
