Wasn't aware I had the patch.  I may have it even though all my email
was deleted earlier in the month.  I'll have to look at what you're
doing, my ideal behavior was the following: (this applies to both search
and replace) the previous string is bracketed text before the prompt by
default, not editable.  Hit up or down arrow and the previous string
becomes editable text after the prompt.  Hit up to go back through the
previous searches/replaces, hit down once from the previous string to
get a blank.  Kind of like bash history.

When I get home I'll have a look and see if (1) I have your patch (2) 
the patch does anything close to this (3) see if I can make it do 
something like this ;)
