First thing to rule out is Windows-level problems -- I assume if you run
"cat" from bash, you can type in 'B', right? Then let's work on bash:
Can you paste a 'B' into bash? Does 'B' show up if you type 'Ctrl-V B'?
Does 'bind -p | grep "B"' show anything for 'B'?
Check your .inputrc for any bindings for "B"; then .bashrc and
/etc/profile, for any "bind" commands.
