No, that's expected. gdb-mi mode does not support command line editing
(it doesn't use readline), as it's meant to be driven by a machine.
The workaround is to start in normal cli mode, and use interpreter-exec mi.
That's not the same, but it's close enough in most cases.
(I've wished MI used readline myself before thought).
