This is a bash issue. It occurs only on a newly opened terminal windows or with
a fresh bash instance.
1. Start xterm and hold down a key => same behaviour like in gnome-terminal.
2. Start gnome-terminal.
2.1 Type in a random command and hit enter. Then hold down a key => wrapping
occurs like expected.
2.2 Run /bin/bash inside this window and hold down a key => no wrapping.
2.3 Run /bin/zsh inside this window and hold down a key => wraps correctly.
Fixed with the latest bash update.
Closing as resolved in rawhide.
