unix-line-discard.   It now works to "bind c-x:unix-line-discard" (in
my .bashrc).  I don't have records of my earlier experiments (I wish I
did, because I was *sure* I'd tried that), but I was unable to get that
before - everything I tried either did nothing or bound an ordinary
letter instead.

Yes, I've had run-ins with it too.  See NetBSD PR 29597 (and 3982, if
you're interested in some of the history).
