A new release of bash, 3.2-4, is now available for experimental use,
replacing 3.2-3. Version 3.1-9 remains as the current version for now.
PROMISING - for the first time since January, the <TAB> completion works
without duplicating the last character on the line!

I've installed Bash 3.2-4 and libreadline6 5,2-2 as suggested, and the
rxvt version I've been running is 20050409-3. I'll continue testing and

Follow up: Although early tests were promising, the same problems have
returned. Still using Bash 3.2-4 and libreadline6 5,2-2, and rxvt

duplication in the "/" character. Example:
Assume a directory structure of
Typing "cd ~/projects" and pressing <TAB> completed ~/projects/
satisfactorily, but when pressing <TAB> a second time, "//" appeared
instead of "projects/project" so the problem persists.
The other issue that I face after having a terminal window open awhile
is that the BASH key editing bindings become lost - e.g. pressing ^A to
go the beginning of a line inserts a ^A instead of moving around.
Pressing ^E does not go to the end of the line but instead is over the
last character of the line, so appending to the line is impossible.
Is there anything I can do to help test? Let me know. I really long
for the days of last year when the command line editing with RXVT was
