Oh, I see now: you've patched readline 4.3 with my patches from an
older version.

I did both, but still couldn't figure out the issue, since there were
clearly changes that didn't come from any of these two sources.

Yes, a good idea, IMHO.

Thanks, I will commit them shortly.

I did that, and they are.

(There was a plan to have a termcap library for DJGPP that would
eliminate the need for those ugly hacks, but I don't have time to
carry it over, not just yet.)

Looked at those as well as part of my attempts to understand what
happened.  AFAICS, some of those patches (or their close equivalents)
are already in GDB's repository.

Thanks again.
