That seems fishy. You are probably better off getting to the root
of why " isn't working the first time around. Perhaps a faulty
.inputrc setting is at play? Or maybe a strange stty setting?
Escape character in your terminal program, even? Though that seems
unlikely to me: the terminal programs I've used of late look for ~ as
the first character on a line only, and the double quotes are not at
the start of a line.
