That is what I wanted to know. I can now press on knowing nothing is
wrong rather than worry about a non-existent error.

The problem is my superficial understanding of `history'. In the fully
working systems I've used I could aways return to the initial blank
line when using up/down arrow keys; I didn't know there was another
way of working. (In the brief look at the manpage for bash-2.05b I
didn't see any reference to what you mentioned but I'll look more
carefully later in bash-3.0's manpage.)
