The current behavior is for [enter] to end the isearch, 
leaving the cursor at the current (matched) location, correct?
I routinely use this when defining keyboard macros (as well as
in normal editing).  Is there some other key I should be using

Or am I misunderstanding the changed behavior?  I notice there
is different behavior when in isearch-mode via ^s and repeatedly
typing ^s to find subsequent matches, and using command-G to also
find subsequent matches.
