           * vc-bzr.el: fix typo in Known Bugs section.

           * isearch.el (isearch-update-post-hook): New hook
           (isearch-update): Use the new hook.

   The Committer used the full Changelog entry as the commit message, so on
   interfaces that just shows the first line of the commit (like the
   emacs-diffs mailing list or the output of `bzr log --short' or `qlog')
   you see

   which is hardly indicative of the change.

This seems more of a short comming in `bzr log --short' than in the
way one writes commit messages.  A commit message is more than a
single line.  And the purpose of a change is always more suitable in
the actual code as a comment.
