I tested the command sequence you gave and the result was as you
explained. What caught my attention, however, was that all the
commands were builtin. I tested with non-builtin commands (eg.
/bin/echo instead of echo) and ESC-. did nothing. In fact unless the
last command was a builtin, ESC-. just repeated the last _editing_
This is not a desired behaviour however IMO, to repeat the last
command (if builtin) upon a ESC-. on an empty line.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.
