[plt-scheme] Bug in readline?

I apologize about the delay, I was out of the country for the long weekend.

My scheme version is:
Welcome to MzScheme v369.10 [3m], Copyright (c) 2004-2007 PLT Scheme Inc.

My .mzschemerc is:
(require (lib "errortrace.ss" "errortrace"))
;(dynamic-require '(lib "rep.ss" "readline") #f)

I currently use Ubuntu (7.04).  My TERM is either screen or xterm(Gnome
terminal), both seem to demonstrate the problem.  Even in a plain tty I get
the same issue.

With regards,
