ivy-initial-inputs-alist not working for man command? #1226

Every other entry in the default ivy-initial-input-alist seems to take effect, except for (man . "^"), which doesn't work. I'm not sure what this is about, but it's inconvenient since I had actually set ivy-initial-input-alist to just '((man . "^")).

Thanks, fixed.

It can be unreliable customizing things like ivy-initial-inputs-alist for commands that don't call ivy-read directly, because ivy can't identify the caller unambiguously.
This time, the command was identified by collection function (which has priority), not by this-command.
