If you have a recent version of emacs (e.g., CVS), it's bound to `C-c .'
in comint-derived modes (like shell-mode) -- I thought that `M-.' was too
general a binding for it in emacs, even thought it's handy.

The command name is `comint-insert-previous-argument'.

If you want it bound to `M-.', you can do:

   (defun my-comint-mode-hook ()
     (local-set-key "\M-." 'comint-insert-previous-argument))
   (add-hook 'comint-mode-hook 'my-comint-mode-hook)

Stir as necessary.
