LLDB's command line editing leaves a lot to be desired. The thing
which annoys me the most is that you get bogus characters inserted if
you press the wrong character (e.g. left arrow) in the incremental
search (^R) mode.

Is this an offer to implement the feature? ;)
If so, I know a couple of people, who would be very pleased by that. :)
