I'm running RH7.2 with bash

$ bash --version
GNU bash, version 2.05.8(1)-release (i386-redhat-linux-gnu)
Copyright 2000 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

and I can't get the key bindings to work as they used to in the old
bash in RH7.1. Could someone help me, at least by replicating the
situation I have.

First, let's see what the key sequence for
non-incremental-reverse-search-history. This should be given by
bind -p, because according to the man page it's output can be re-read
by bash.

$ bind -p | grep non-incremental-reverse-search-history
"\ep": non-incremental-reverse-search-history
# non-incremental-reverse-search-history-again (not bound)

In fact, function non-incremental-reverse-search-history is launched
by pressing Alt-p, so "\ep" must be the notation for that key sequence
(believe me, the situation is not any better if I try with "\M-p").

Now let's try to bind the same key to a different command

$ bind "\ep":history-search-backward
$ bind -p | grep history-search-backward
"\\": history-search-backward

So it does not work. Shouldn't it work? Could you please at least
replicate the problem so that I know I'm not doing something wrong or
missing some weird package.

Thank you very much in advance.
