But here's a bug for you, in readline:

- edit a line

- go to some character

- replace that character with another, using the "r" command.

- cruise further down the line to another character

- hit the "." repeat command

The replace operation will not be executed, but rather the "x"

This has actually improved over the years.  A while back, repeating an
earlier operation like that would get characters tangled up. Now, it
seems at least to be deterministic.

I can't reproduce this on bash-5.0 or bash-5.1.

Thank you for your response.

Perhaps I have some weird configuration error:


In this example, I changed the "h" of echo to "x", then moved right to
the "A" of BASH and hit "."
