Backspace over the first digit typed to follow a link exits the number insertion but still draws numeric hints
To reproduce the behavior
- hit f in normal mode (so that the hints for the various links show up),
- hit a single digit, e.g. 1,
- hit Backspace.
Now you are in normal mode and the hints are still shown.
Imho the behavior is inconsistent. At least we should be either in
- normal mode without the hints shown,
- "follow link"-mode with the hints shown.
I'd rather prefer the latter, actually.
