[mcview] No "not found" message if searching for text from the beginning of the file

If, when searching for a string in a text file open for viewing, the string is not found in the file, mcview does not display any messages at the end of search. This only happens if the file is open for view at the very beginning.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open a relatively large text file for viewing. (F3)
  2. Make sure you're looking at the beginning of the file. (Home)
  3. Search for a string that is not in the file. (F7, type the string, Enter).

Actual results:

After the search is complete (judging by the CPU load), no messages are displayed. It's hard to tell what the result of the operation was.

Expected results:

mcview should display the message that the string was not found. It does so when the search is performed from the middle of the file.
