Something that I find consistently annoying is that if a mini-buffer-using command
blows out before it completes (e.g. gets a file-system error and I c-Z from the EH)
then it is not yet in c-altmodes history table and I cannot retry it.
This is not true, you are confused. After reading from the mini-buffer, the string is
available in the ring. Presumably what you are thinking of is typing C-X C-F and
having the filejob die before finding the defaults for the command, in which case the
mini-buffer has not been used yet and whatever you typed is only typeahead.
