I recently discovered Readline's 'yank-pop' and 'vi-yank-pop' commands.
 From what I understand, 'yank-pop' is supposed to cycle through Bash's
internal kill-ring
after yanking the most recent killed text.
The command works as expected in Emacs mode, but trying to use its
counterpart in vi mode seems to just return an error (the bell sound
is played).

Thanks for the report. It looks like this behavior (which happens only at
the beginning of a line) has been around since the original code was
contributed in 2011.

I'll look at it after bash-5.2/readline-8.2 is released.
