As noted on the bug-bash list, rebinding a character defined by stty is ignored
by bash v3.0. Bash 3.1 / readline 5.0 (5.1?) makes this a configurable option,
set bind-tty-special-chars off

(I have a couple posts about this as well, but they're not showing up in the
archive as of this moment).
I've tested, and this works with bash 3.1.x / readline 5.0 in FC5.
As my organization starts deploying RHEL 4 (vs 3), this is going to be a huge
annoyance. Is there any chance of backporting this feature, assuming the major
revision is unlikely to change within RHEL 4? If it matters, the company I work
for has a support contract.
