Likely the same bug we've seen before with libedit, or related;
GHC bug reported at http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/2716
(closed as invalid as the problem isn't with GHC)
Gentoo bug report at http://bugs.gentoo.org/237882 to fix gentoo's libedit.
You can try to apply the patch in the gentoo bug locally and see if that
resolves the issue.
