Okay.  I just set "set enable-bracketed-paste off" in my /etc/inputrc. Perhaps this change should be documented in CHANGES, and in the man page (where enable-bracketed-paste is said to have the default value Off).

The manual page in the released version will reflect the default setting of bracketed paste. While it will probably remain on by default, there have already been several reports of the bracketed paste enable/disable escape sequences interfering with program-driven readline use cases, so it's not certain it will.

FWIW, I've been using bash for twenty years (starting with version 2.05 IIRC), and it's the first time I see changes that I find disturbing and want to turn off. The paste behavior with enable-bracketed-paste on also disturbed me, but I wasn't sure how to explain it.
