Follow-up Comment #14, bug #41337 (project octave):

Following comment #13 in bug #41124: the reason why e.g. ALT+p doesn't trigger
the proper readline action as does ESC followed by "p" character is that you
end with the equivalent of ESC followed by "pi" (the greek letter *on my
keyboard layout*, this may be different for others). 

Disabling the system wide behavior of option key is not an option because you
end with no modifier at all: ALT+p is then equivalent to p and Qt doesn't see
you have pressed ALT.

Instead of letting the current behavior, i.e. ALT+... -> ESC followed by ...,
be configurable, I would simply disable it on mac platform until we have a
proper solution.

There is a workaround: using ESC.
