This problem is very rare in the minibuffer because usually the
minibuffer contents is displayed completely in its entirety.  However,
later we can add an option like `scroll-error-top-bottom' that will
signal an error on the first hit to the beginning/end of the minibuffer,
and only on the second hit go to the previous/next history item.

Then you can use M-p/M-n.
