bug#25562: 25.1; isearch-forward-word first matches a non-word

I see, thanks for the explanation. That's still unsatisfactory to me. I think an ideal incremental word search would just start over from the current point each time a new character is typed (that's what most users would expect). Then any non-insertion command would make the user "commit" to the particular search and the incremental search proper would begin. Is that compatible with the current design of isearch?
