Does it mean that, Unicode work normal with bash and it display one
character when everything is right? Does this code work on different

python -c 'print "ó"'

I could report it to Ubuntu, but maybe it's something larger or
smaller. Maybe it's a bug and no one nice that or just misconfiguration.

In locale I have pl_PL.UTF-8 which I didn't change and everything work
except bash.

I have the same issue on Red Hat 4.4.6-3 run via ssh, but maybe it's
with how keyboard is handled (python run inside ssh work the same but
not from command line).

How bash handle input? Using readline right? So next thing I should
check is to look there, right?

Do you know what kind of steps and different libraries/code are
executed from time when user hit the key to the time when character is
process with bash? So I can track back and check each step.

Linux Driver, Readline, bash - are there more?
