OK, I think I know what the problem is.

I noticed that `rl_insert_text' writes past the end of the rl_line_buffer 
buffer:

So somehow rl_point ended up with an invalid value. Tracing that problem:

I still don't know how to trigger this with "human" input, but I think the
problem is that rl_point should be bounded by the value of rl_end, thus the
following patch makes the problem go away:
