This happens because bash maps the tty special characters (^C, ^W, ^U, ^V,
and so on) to their bash equivalents every time readline is invoked.

I implemented this in response to complaints that readline failed to notice
changes made via `stty'.  It's reasonable to have readline do what the user
expects here.

Yours is the first complaint the other way.
