Removing from-element from the history list is not a good solution.
Most often I type C-g in the to-element prompt, when instead
of typing a long to-element I need to switch to another buffer
and copy to-element from that buffer (to yank it later from the kill ring
to the to-element prompt).  After that I type M-% again, and definitely
don't want to re-type the from-element.  I need to get the previous
already entered from-element from the history by M-p in the
from-element's prompt.
