This was fixed by readline-7.0 patch 5, which was released in 2018.

It seems that with version 7 of readline this binding doesn't work as expected:

set keymap vi-insert
"\e[200~": bracketed-paste-begin

What happens is that the \e is interpreted as a literal escape and the user is kicked into the vi-command mode. This doesn't happen with version 6.2. Is there a solution for this?



(Note: upload size limit is set to 16384 kB, after insertion of the required escape characters.)
