Re: renaming long filenames



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

What I've always done is to press the up arrow key once after hitting
the 'R' key.  I never tried the w key as once inside the minibuffer, I
would think any normal letter typed would get inserted into the new
file name.  I know the up arrow trick works for me.
