If I run `comint-previous-matching-input-from-input' (which I have bound
to M-p) then `comint-next-matching-input-from-input' (which I have bound
to M-n), I would expect to get back to the line I'm currently typing,
but instead it goes past it to the next matching input (cycling round to
the end of the input ring).

This is logical from the point of view of what the functions say they
do, but confound my expectations, which are governed by the behavior of
the equivalent readline functions, history-search-{forward,backward}.

I cannot therefore confidently say this is a bug, but I can say it's not
what I expect.

I suppose that if the current line were already considered part of the
input ring then I would get the behavior I expect in this case, but that
would make this input ring behave differently from every other Emacs
input ring, so I'm really not sure what to suggest.
