     Either I am confused or you are.  Why use :cmap for this?

     I would suggest

:nmap n n:match Search /\%#<C-R>//<CR>
:nmap N N:match Search /\%#<C-R>//<CR>

Note that vim is smart enough to avoid recursion here:  you can use
:nnoremap if you want, but :nmap is good enough.

     If this solution works well for you, please consider posting it as
a vim tip:
