I usually start Rev up once and leave it running for days or weeks at a 
time, so to be honest I have never noticed this. But to test, I just 
quit and restarted Rev, and I am seeing the same behavior (which makes 
me a little embarrassed that I led you through all that deletion stuff.)

Testing again with 2.8.1, I see that it does open with an empty message, 
but if you hit the up arrow, your previous message history is available 
just as it is in 2.9. Perhaps the only bug is that the message box is no 
longer adding a blank line to the history before it opens.
