The mechanism used to allow longer key sequences to `shadow' but still
allow prefixes of those sequences to be bound to other commands discards
part of the original (shorter) key sequence. This doesn't usually matter,
except when you need it -- like, say, with the vi-mode `d', `c', and `y'
commands. I'll have to figure out the best way to fix this.
