Ah yes I typed in the wrong line number, thanks.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.  This almost makes it work like it used to.
Only problem is it doesn't stick the cursor at the end of the line, but
I can get used to that.  Actually I think I like it better this way.
It would be nice if the old behavior was some how retained or a new 
binding was added, I don't want to edit the source everywhere.

Also what does "up-line" mean?  Should it go to the previous command
if you haven't typed anything?  In a stock 3.1.4 it just beeps.
Previous versions used to go to the previous command.

Where do you want your pizza? :-)
