There is no explicit signal for this.

The main thread sets 'search_next_done' when it has found a matching commit
in its list of commits.

2080                 err = match_commit(&have_match, entry->id, entry->commit,
2081                     &view->regex);
2082                 if (err)
2083                         break;
2084                 if (have_match) {
2085                         view->search_next_done = 1;

The log thread performs the same matching and simply stops adding more commits
as soon as a match is found, assuming the main thread will eventually see and
match the commit which the log thread has added to the list.

Pressing 'n' unconditionally sets search_next_done to zero, which could be why
'n' triggers a bug?
