*description of the bug behaviour.
I use a UK keyboard map, but when i type UK specific keys on the
keyboard, such as £, the pound sterling symbol, i get \243 typed to the
screen. Fair enough, i can put an echo in front of that and get bash to
show me the £ symbol, but i'd really like it to appear when i type it...
the same goes for a few othere characters such as ¬. is this a known

here is my /etc/inputrc
set horizontal-scroll-mode Off
set meta-flag On      # Enables 8 bit input
set input-meta On     # Enables 8 bit input
set convert-meta Off  # Turns off 8th bit stripping
set output-meta On    # Keep the 8th bit for display
set bell-style none   # none,visable or audible
"\eOd": backward-word
"\eOc": forward-word
"\e[1~": beginning-of-line
"\e[4~": end-of-line
"\e[5~": beginning-of-history
"\e[6~": end-of-history
"\e[3~": delete-char
"\e[2~": quoted-insert
"\eOH": beginning-of-line
