@Mike, I'm not positive, but that could be a feature of being in vi mode on the command line rather than the default readline/emacs style key bindings.

There's actually a good post on this blog about vi mode.

In vi, I know you can do a search with "/" and I wouldn't be surprised if you could then up arrow through commands.

Alternatively, most shells that I've used support using the arrow keys to maneuver through history (without using a slash).
