I kinda guessed that.  (Me too: I have non-nil
`select-enable-clipboard'.  There's also

OK, but why?  Do you really see a use case for
a separate such thing for Isearch?  If a user
typically doesn't want mere selection to also
copy to the `kill-ring' or primary or whatever,
would she want a selection during Isearch to be
available for yanking?

I'm not objecting - just trying to understand
why we'd want both `isearch-yank-kill' and
what you propose.


On the other hand, because the secondary
selection is a different critter entirely from
the primary (clipboard...), a separate Isearch
yank command for it makes sense to me.

(I have it as `isearch-yank-secondary', and I
bind it to both `C-M-y' and `C-y 2' in Isearch.
I bind `isearch-yank-kill' to `C-y C-y'.)
