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

        In emacs mode bash should move through current command line one
word at a time when using CTRL-Left or CTRL-Right arrow. This fails due
to a misconfiguration in /etc/inputrc

        type multi word command and press CTRL+Left arrow. This results
in "5D" being written at cursor position rather than the cursor being

     Modify the inputrc file in particular, the mode=emacs section
should contain the following lines

"\e[1;5C": forward-word
"\e[1;5D": backward-word

     Currently these are set as

"\e5C": forward-word
"\e5D": backward-word
