I'm running into an issue that I'm not sure if it's a feature, a bug, or just 
an oversight. If I open a file in ed, yank some text with `y`, then open a new 
file for editing using `e`, I can't paste the yanked text with `x`. Example:

# Start with two files - test1 and test 2
# I want to copy the second line from test1 into test2
$ ed test1
# print the text stored in the file test1 with line numbers
1 test1 text
2 a second line
# yank (copy) the second line of the file test1
# open file test2 for editing
e test2
# attempt to paste the yanked text from test1 into test2
Nothing to put
