/me guessing
Could it be this change?

New Revision: 68061

G_recreate_command: Add empty answers.
Fix the command history for e.g., v.edit where="". Without this fix,
where="" is not included, which makes an invalid command.

which looks like a valid improvement to me. If it is this one, perhaps
the tests need some update?
