This is okay as a quick fix, so I'll push it to the 2.5 branch (and the HEAD 
if it applies cleanly).

I think ideally the manual would contain an explanation of what linear and 
binary search are, and contain one or more examples of cases where trackdown 
--bisect is useful. I don't have the time to write that myself though, so I'll 
shut up.

I also see that there are some places where "--bisect" is written in running 
text and LaTeX interprets the "--" as code for an extra long dash. I'll push a 
little patch to fix that.
