Not that bad ;) A problem though:

+       if (instant)
+               // re-query current match
+               dispatch(FuncRequest(LFUN_WORD_BACKWARD));

The search string is not necessarily a word. Instead of going a word 
backward, the best is to put the cursor at the beginning of the selection.

Example: open the Intro manual and search for the string "find a problem".

Another feature of  this emacs search as you type is that when one types 
C-s the search string is empty, but a second C-s will set the search 
string to the last string. I am not sure this is compatible with our 
toggling behavior, though. Personally, I prefer a new C-f to do 
find-next than toggle, but it is a matter of taste.
