kubuntu 6.06 dapper: strange bash

Hello folks,

A week ago I installed kubuntu 6.06. While working in a bash shell I used to enter a p to return to the previous directory.
But with kubuntu this does not seem to work, although it is a common bash-command.

root@madeira:~# p
-bash: p: command not found

Now I was so familiar to use the "p" that I am becoming annoyed with this reaction.
Anyone else having this problem? And is there a solution for this deviation?

Best regards,

Use "cd -" to cd to the previous directory.
