Package: mysql-client-5.1
Version: 5.1.36-4
Severity: normal

As usual upgrade bring a bad news. For a years I have fun with full support
of readline in mysql in opposite to others softwares where it is needed.
But now after moving from 5.0 to 5.1 we have surprise as usual. By force
of habit I have pressed ESC-P expecting prompt for search pattern, but it
has the same effect as Ctrl-P, that is previous item in the history,
instead. And as usual there no notifaction about such new "feature".
And how to search history now?
