That readline module was never tested by me, and I am not sure what causes it to even
load.  Let me know if and when you understand that.  :)   We had been running without it
for a couple of months fine.

You can temporarily remove that module and see what you get, maybe rename it so it is not
visible.  This will at least narrow the search scope, and focus fixing efforts thereafter.
