When there are several editors on the screen and one is in the middle of doing
an Incremental Search (c-S), it is impossible to select another editor with
the mouse. The characters that should be going to the just-selected editor

characters, the search continues, but when you type a control character, the
other window automatically selects itself! I dub this the "boomerang effect."
