comment Can't type the “b” letter in Python shell in OS X
I worked a bit more on this... looks like others have similar problems with other python interfaces. In my system I have a .pythonrc.py file that is parsed when python starts (pointed to by PYTHONSTARTUP). In this file two modules are loaded rlcompleter and readline. It then calls readline.parse_and_bind("bind -v"). This call initilizes the readline module by copying the bindings from the shell (you can see yours by going into the bash shell and typing 'bind -v' (no quotes)). One of these must creat the problem. If I comment the line (place # in front of it.), the problem disappears.
