[Bug-readline] cannot assign function to Control-W

This is GNU readline 5.2 on Ubuntu 8.04.2.

Problem: I cannot assign a new function to Control-W in INPUTRC.

With other Control-keys I have no problem.

Example (contents of INPUTRC):

Control-w: dump-functions
Control-o: dump-functions

Control-O then has the function dump-functions, but 
Control-W still has the default-function unix-word-rubout!

Even more irritating:

When I type Control-X Control-R (function re-read-init-file), then
Control-W has the new function dump-functions!

When I assign a string in INPUTRC:

Control-w: "TEST!"

then this works. Only binding a function to Control-W fails - at last at
normal startup.
