New submission from Matthijs Blom <>:

To reproduce (on Windows):
On the console, enter some input:

    >>> "Ozewiezewoze wiezewalla kristalla"
    "Ozewiezewoze wiezewalla kristalla"

Next, hold the right arrow key, obtaining:

    >>> "Ozewiezewoze wiezewalla kristalla"

One can subsequently delete sections of this line and again reproduce (last 
parts of) the previous input.

I have produced this result on 3.4, 3.8.0b3 and master (077af8c).
I did not observe this behaviour on WSL, which is why I think this is a bug.
