More practically, I always wondered why when using the up arrow to scroll back into history, it doesn't filter with what is already in the command line.

The typical example case is when I type a long command line and then use many whatever commands afterwards. Suddenly, I happen to need again that first long command line. I naturally, start typing it (the first few characters) then remembers that I typed it already and scroll up in the history. Since I type the first few characters, Konsole should grep the history accordingly and show me only the commands I used that started in the same way.

Well, it felt so natural to me this way that I get annoyed when I realize I have to move up 25 commands in the history to find again the command I wanted which is only 20 characters long.
