Then readline needs fixing, or bash needs to stop using it. Really,
this is *not* rocket science; I managed to do it on 4.3BSD when hacking
line editing into csh. tcsh manages to do it today. bash could do it
too - if its maintainers cared to bother.
If I were going to be using Linux enough to make it worth my while, I'd
port over my shell (a rather mutant csh with, among other things,
command-line editing that doesn't get upset over c_cc[VSUSP]=0x10).
Of course, ranting about it here is of dubious value, since it's
clearly not a case like the ls sort order where there is a fix and I
just don't yet know about it. (I don't suppose you know of any way to
rebind ^X so that it's not a prefix key, by any chance?)
