I upgraded from 6.2 to 6.3-prerelease and I noticed something very strange with bash (or perhaps readline).
I have had for many hears this in my .bash_login: export LANG=en_US.ISO8859-15 This makes 8-bit characters come out as accented characters instead of character codes like <C6>. However, with the upgrade to 6.3pre, something has changed. Same bash binary. If I set $LANG like this, certain meta-bindings like this do not work: bind '"\M-p": history-search-backward' bind '"\M-n": history-search-forward' Before the upgrade, m-p would go to the previous command or the previous command like the one that was partially typed in. Now, it produces a : prompt. If I remove the LANG setting from my .bash_login, it works fine. So either I can have proper accented characters or I can have working meta key bindings with bash (and readline), but not both. Anyone know of a fix for this? Am I setting LANG in the wrong place? I have tried putting these bindings into my .inputrc but that didn't help.
