I don't have time to look at this now - hopefully someone else will help you. 

But here's one piece of info that might help a little: isearch does not use the
minibuffer (for normal searching); it uses the echo area. It reads your input
events without using the minibuffer, and it echoes your keys to the echo area in
an incremental way.
