Spontaneous Entry to Incremental Search

   If Emacs spontaneously displays `I-search:' at the bottom of the
screen, it means that the terminal is sending `C-s' and `C-q' according
to the poorly designed xon/xoff "flow control" protocol.  You should
try to prevent this by putting the terminal in a mode where it will not
use flow control, or by giving it enough padding that it will never
send a `C-s'.  If that cannot be done, you must tell Emacs to expect
flow control to be used, until you can get a properly designed terminal.

   Information on how to do these things can be found in the file
`INSTALL' in the Emacs distribution.
