Losing key bindings in Bash 3.00.16(14)-release

- Subject: Losing key bindings in Bash 3.00.16(14)-release
Versions: Windows XP SP2, RXVT 2.7.10, Bash 3.00.16(14)-release, Cygwin
Since Bash 3.x became the default version installed with Cygwin, on my
system, Bash inexplicably loses the command line edit bindings. This
usually happens when a window has been open for a day or more and I've
done alot of work in it.
The problem shows itself when I press Ctrl-A or Ctrl-E or other command
line editing keys, and instead of going to the start or the end of the
line, I see "^A" or "^E" in the command line at the cursor position.
(I have Bash 3.00.14(1)-release on a Fedora Linux system and haven't
noticed this behavior.)
I haven't discovered how to restore editing bindings to the BASH command
line other than closing the RXVT window and re-opening it.
Thanks for any suggestions.
