I don't like the sound of this.

I'd much rather have a definite oldest that you get 'stuck' at instead of
wrapping round. If you want to get to the most recent, a ^C ^W starts you
off again.

^W              Search [Redwood] :
enter                                   now searching

^W              Search [Redwood] :
abc             Search [] : abc         a new search string being entered
enter                                   now searching

^W              Search [Redwood] :
up              Search [] : Redwood     string now ediatble
up              search [] : tree        this string editable too
1               search [] : tree1       edit it
(keys)          search [] : tre1on      further editing
up              search [] : saw         change of mind, get older string
(keys)          search [] : bigsaw      edit it
enter                                   now searching for bigsaw

Do these three examples describe the desired behaviour ?
