Yes, 5.x grew support for new behaviour at the command prompt which
allows you to cycle through your command history. Unfortunately Ctrl-N
was already a valid key sequence in 4.x, but instead of printing network
information in 5.x, Ctrl-N cycles to the next command in the history.

I'm not quite sure of the best way to fix this regression, other than
assigning a new key sequence for displaying network information.
