Nope. It simply does nothing in the console.
But in X11, it does something very odd. Shift+Tilde Key gives me '>',
and Tilde Key gives me '<'. And Alt+Tilde gives me... What? I don't
even know what action it's grabbing some arbitrary command in my
.bash_history. It gave me the first item in my .bash_history the first
time I tried it. Then I tried an arbitrary command ("echo"), and then
Alt+Tilde gave me the second command in my .bash_history. Whaa?
