Pry.line_buffer doesn't show the last line, here's a quick example:

[1] pry(main)> def show_last_line; puts Pry.line_buffer[-1]; end
=> nil
[2] pry(main)> show_last_line
def show_last_line; puts Pry.line_buffer[-1]; end
=> nil

While Pry.history does so:

[1] pry(main)> def show_last_line; puts Pry.history.to_a[-1]; end
=> nil
[2] pry(main)> show_last_line
=> nil

This is a bit tricky. @rf- explained that the line you're entering is in return value (the array), but you won't notice it during the evaluation (when you print it).

@kyrylo i'm guessing you closed it by accident :)

Whoops! I'm really bad at hitting "Comment" button today. :-)
Failed the second time.

@kyrylo Noted. Just thought that it isn't the expected behaviour. At the moment, i'm able to construct lines in the current session reliably (i hope) with:

[Pry.line_bugger, Pry.history.to_a[-1]].flatten

In theory I don't see any reason we couldn't push the entered line into line_buffer before evaling it. I tried it out and it broke some tests, though, so either there's some fundamental reason it's a bad idea or we just need to update the tests.
