	The vi-mode command editing seems to ignore counts on the 's' and
	'x' commands.
	[prompt] sh
	$ set -o vi
	$ foo
	without hitting return, hit escape, and 'h'.  the cursor will be on
	the o.  hit '2x' or '2s' and watch only one 'o' go away.

	Don't know; presumably, use the count on these things.  It doesn't
	barf on the 2, so it must be doing *something* with it.
