vi command line editing gone in fabos 5.1 ?

I have some v5.1.0a brocade switches and I noticed that esc-k does not allow scrolling through the command line history. It works on v5.0.3 and earlier????

I've heard that is true too, but standard readline sequences still work, (Ctrl+p for scrolling back through the history), do a man on readline to get the full scoop. I know that most of the sequences work, but I haven't tried them all.

FabOS 5.1 introduced a linux like approach, you can scroll trough command history with cursor up/down (and editing with cursor left/right).I didn't found a "set -o vi", no idea if you can switch between the input modes.
