This problem appears to be related to some bad interaction with
screen(1) inside a sid chroot on eller.  i note that bash also has
problems with command line editing in that environment as well.

I'm now running inside of tmux instead, and that problem doesn't happen
any more.

Furthermore, i can't replicate the failure from the buildd when building
on eller either.  So neither bremner nor i were able to replicate the

mipsel porters, do you have any suggestions for next-step debugging?
