Whenever I hit ctrl-r in my command prompt it seems like I have 10 milliseconds to finish typing whatever I'm searching for and at that point it searches for whatever I've typed so far.
It also seems to be missing commands I've typed.
Also when I hit escape after such a failed search it puts whatever dumb thing it's found on my command line. How do I get back to empty command line?
Also how do I scroll through the search results?
If this reverse-i-search can't be better, is there a better way to search my history?
