FWIW, I always rename "/usr/lib/libreadline*" out of the way, for  
each new install/update.

I have never understood what the point of the Apple readline hack is,  
but it's a real pain, and borders on a bug.  For those with the  
energy, I would file a bug with Apple's bugreporter (I have, a while  
back: rdar://4521010, marked as a dup of another bug).
