I'm currently using 'ubuntu intrepid', which has very modern
everything (readline 5.2-3 build1). I've noticed this problem since
the beginning of time now. This is definitely a 'psql + something'
problem...I can paste into psql query buffer editor (vim) following a
/r/e with no problems, but not directly into psql itself.
Another interesting point: the problem manifests with pasts over a
certain size, but tends to bork at a particular point. The size of
the psql window affects this...smaller windows are more tolerant of
larger (but still not very large) pastes.
