I also would like to see this problem fixed.  In this February, I
actually posted to this mailing list a patch fixing this problem (with
another patch):


Although the first patch was applied to the devel branch, the second
one which fixes this problem seems not to have been reviewed yet.  I
updated the patch to fit the current devel branch.  I attach the
updated patch.  Here is the description quoted from the mail:

I declined to apply this patch because, as you observe, it uses private
readline APIs. Bash doesn't do that. Nor did I think it was the right
approach to the problem.

Note that in the attached patch the functions in Readline library,
`_rl_get_keyname' and `_rl_untranslate_macro_value', were made public
and used from Bash codes.  I think it is worth to make them a part of
public interface of Readline library.

I'm not convinced.

I appreciate the reminder, though. This was still on my list of issues
to look at, so I took a look.

It takes maybe a dozen lines of code, and no modifications to readline,
to solve the problem with `bind -r'. There are a couple of other remaining
issues, but that one was easy.
