When I browse through the history in console (R), some lines are abbreviated and the line that preceded it continues - not from the start, but a number of characters missing. See file attached. The last row is the history, with the last line remaining (a few dozen characters of it, anyway) with continued previous rows (can be seen in R console and gedit). I have selected the part of the "history" that does not change when I press the up/down arrows.
I hope this is clear.
