Greetings, and thanks for your report!  This bug is specific to GCL in
readline mode.  An immediate workaround is to turn readline off, for
example, via :lisp (si::readline-off) in maxima.  A fix has been
posted to the 2.6.6 errata page found at
http://www.gnu.org/software/gcl.  It will take some considerable time
to rebuild GCL, maxima, acl2, and axiom on all Debian machines, so I
will delay this pending any more serious issues that may arise in the

Take care,
