This is expected behavior, and has been discussed on this list before.
By default, terminals use Ctrl-V as the quoting character (see 'stty -a'
and 'stty --help').  Readline 5.1 (and thus bash 3.1) added a new
feature, bind-tty-special-characters, defaulted to on, which overrides
key bindings in ~/.inputrc with those specified by the terminal.  The
solution, then, is to either turn this readline feature off (add
"set bind-tty-special-characters off" to ~/.inputrc), or to tell your
terminal to not bind Ctrl-V (add "stty lnext undef" to your ~/.bash_profile).
If you like emacs bindings, where Ctrl-Q is the quoting character
instead of Ctrl-V, you could do "stty lnext ^Q stop undef" instead.
