Can you please send the patch again, but this time as an attachment to
the mail? The tabs/spaces got somehow mangled in the mail and I can't
apply it as it is now.
If in doubt, just zip it :)

I'd say we just have 'wrap around' always enabled, without a checkbox.
Most text editors I know do that too.

I think that would be overkill. I never really liked that feature
anyway, no matter in what editor or other app it is present. I'm used to
have the search always start over at the top again, so why should I want
to specify the search direction?
