[IPython-user] readline problem

I have experienced this many times, but never took the time to report it:

I think there's a problem with readline. When using ctrl-R (to search for 
expressions typed in the past) you can 'pick' the found expression by moving 
the cursor. However, pressing a cursor key has a side effect:

	In [63]: t = Transform_FFT(structures[0].fft)[A

The "[A" is caused by the cursor. I guess this has quite a lot to do with the 
ANSI screen codes for the cursor key and IPython's handling of readline 

This problem doesn't occur in the plain Python shell with readline 
functionality enabled.
