That bug was reported back in September 2017 in the "AmigaOS Shell issue (FE Update 1)" topic and Tony said he fixed it. As a beta tester, it might work correctly for you.
Ah, yes, now I remember (this is the thread you refer to, right?).

But if you notice, the thread ends with Tony still having an issue with his fix attempt, so I believe it has never been completed. At least the bug is still outstanding - which also explains that it still works like I described above, not only in my public installation, but also in my beta installation (note that in the above statement I specifically mentioned a clean public 4.1 Final Edition).

Best regards,

Ah, yes, that is a real pain, that one. If you play with the old 68K version, it doesn't work properly either. You can't "up-arrow" to the previous command if it was a multiple, and the "history" is also wrong.

I'll spend some more time on it soon, but it's not trivial. The whole command history is involved, and that also means embedded escape sequences.
