Hi Sirano,
Normally the past command is highlighted and gets replaced by the next  
command automatically, so does not cause problems.  However, if you  
click in the Command area the highlighting is lost.  I recommend if  
you go to some other window and then come back to the main window,  
just click in the graphics area (and not the Command area) so that the  
highlighting will not be lost.

However, if the highlighting is lost, you can still use Ctrl-u to  
erase the contents of the Command area.  Ctrl-u erases the command  
line contents, Ctrl-p switches to the previous command, and Ctrl-n  
switches to the next command; further text-editing shortcuts are  

I hope this helps,
