      Description

      The continutation marker is not shown when just hitting Enter (or any whitespace followed by Enter) until a semicolon terminates the "query":

      ij version 10.5
      ij>

      ;
      ij>

      Contrast this with the Bash shell's behaviour, which shows a marker as long as the line's being continued:

      MD@sunny ~/derby/trunk
      $ \
      > \
      > \
      >

      But ij should display a continuation marker until the terminating semicolon, regardless of what's been typed so far.
