Well, after I sent my message, it occurred to me that I could check if
the first 7 characters of (symbol-name last-command) are "isearch".  Not
exactly a clean method (neither extremely reliable), but might work.

Hm.  I could use it to set 'this-command to 'isearch.  I wonder what
could break then, though...
