OK, thanks, and sorry for the noise. I've closed this issue.
Looking at the readline manual, it looks like this is tied up with the options
input-meta, output-meta and convert-meta. Fiddling around with .inputrc hasn't
clarified exactly what they do, but it seems that the terminal can either
handle unicode, or shortcuts involving meta (alt), but not both.
