Here's an unfun situation on my 98 char wide emacs 20 screen.
I have the strings
both somewhere in the kill ring, and intend to query-replace the first
with the second using ESC % C-y RET C-y ESC y [ESC y]... RET
but the tails and heads of the strings are the same, so no matter how
I poke around in the minibuffer, I cant see if I've pulled the right
ESC y choice out of the kill ring without interrupting the ESC y's
with other cursor moving functions.
[I have hscroll mode enabled]

It looks like I will have to use
ESC : (query-replace 

No big deal but I thought you might like to know.
