Bash Version: 2.05b
Patch Level: 0
Release Status: release

        Bash 2.05b introduced 'sub-sequence' support for keybindings so that 
the arrow keys work in vi insert mode. In bash 2.05a it was possible to press 
Left-Arrow, and then the arrow keys would work, but in command arrow. In 
bash2.05b, the same keysequences work, but now bash is in vi insert mode 
instead of command mode.
        I found the patch which claims to implement this at:

        set -o vi
        Press left-arrow, up-arrow
        In bash 2.05b, bash is in vi insert mode.

        Add an option to use the old behaviour?
