This thread[1] might be somewhat relevant:

    The problem is that eshell tells subprocesses that they're running in
    a terminal (e.g., when queried via hIsTerminalDevice), but always
    echos user input itself regardless of the tty's ECHO attribute. This
    confuses libedit, which assumes that if it's connected to a terminal
    then it can turn off echoing in order to run its own rich line editor.

I guess renaming should have the least amount of side-effects.
