Steve, this seems to be a readline issue on OS X.  I ran into the same
problem recently and never did get it sorted out.  See this thread for


As noted in the thread, my workaround was to remove readline from my
.guile file and use emacs+paredit+geiser when I need an interactive
session.  That works pretty well, but, still, it would be nice to be
able to invoke guile from a terminal and have readline support.
