Description Alec Voropay 2000-02-21 12:02:00 EST
On some locales with 8-bit charsers, the 'readline' library
still treat these symbols as Meta-characters.
As result, for example, bash can't input russian filenames.

Could you set up INPUTRC= on every shell start :

/etc/profile.d/readline.sh  [executable]
INPUTRC="/etc/inputrc"; export INPUTRC

set meta-flag on
set convert-meta off
set output-meta on
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-02-21 12:14:59 EST
input already should be set up by the various invocations
of bashrc and /etc/profile; there is a default inputrc
that will be read if $HOME/.inputrc doesn't exist.
