I reported this to Gnu Readline: <https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-readline/2015-05/msg00014.html>. So far it sounds like there is no general solution. I am posting a patch implementing Sebastian’s workaround. But my personal philosophy is to leave Python alone if it is not doing anything wrong and this is indeed a Readline bug.

Chet also pointed out that there are other modes in addition to incremental search that are not cancelled. For instance, the “argument” mode where you press Alt+<number> etc.
