Are you saying that you hit "control-g", there are matches, but you do
not jump to the next match? That sounds like a bug.

I'm not quite getting this part. I think you might be suggesting a way
to improve the search -- perhaps you can elaborate a little?

You mean how many matches before and how many after the insertion
point, as in "there are 5 matches after the insertion point"? Or do
you mean the count, as in "the current section is the 3rd match"
(which might not always be relevant, if nothing is selected).
