Bug Description

Occasionally, one will send a message with a typo or accidentally hit Enter before completing the message. It should be possible to use a sent-message history, like when you hit the up key in bash. Right now, hitting the up key removes focus from the editor box but doesn't seem to focus anything else.

It might make the most sense to have the arrow key stuff behave like Pidgin does:
- Hit the up arrow, and it jumps to start of the text (down to reach the end)
- Hit ctrl+up to go back through history (ctrl+down to reach more recent messages in history)

I would like to see this too.
I keep hitting UP and ctrl+up hopping to get my last message back

Yup, the CTRL+UP would be nice...

Pushed branch with this feature added. Use Ctrl+Up and Ctrl+Down to move up and down the message history.
