I keep on running into an irb/readline bug in script/console or plain
irb.  If the line
lengths get to long then up-arrow won't bring up the line properly.  I
guess that the
readline buffer is only so many characters long and I'm clobbering
something.  After it
gets clobbered then up-arrow only prints an ampersand.
