Bash Version: 3.0
Patch Level: 16
Release Status: release

  In VI mode the "r" command no longer keeps the cursor over the changed
  character; it moves the cursor to the right after the change.  This is
  different from previous versions I've used and no longer does what "vi"

  Cursor to a character to replace, do "r" and the character to replace with.
  Watch cursor move to the right one column from the change.

  Go back to mimicking the real vi behaviour please!  Is there an environment
  variable or something I can change to get the old behaviour back?
