Make Ctrl-F wrap-around message blocking again ?

Hi Alex,

currently, there are four positions for the message widget:

    AboveView - show message above view
    BelowView - show message below view
    TopInView - show message as view overlay in the top right corner
    BottomInView - show message as view overlay om the bottom right corner

We cold add:

    CenterInView - show message as overlay vertically and horizontally
centered in the the view

Then, we could always show a text "Search wrapped" without the
distinction "Continuing from top" and "Continuing from bottom".

Would that help?

Best regards,
