I found out that the problem is not only with bash, but it seems to be
with programs that use libreadline library like gdb or ftp. Anyway,
I'll copy it here and my /etc/inputrc goes next. I don't have any

# /etc/profile: system-wide .profile file for bash(1).

PS1="\\$ "

export PATH PS1

umask 002

if [ "$SHELL" = "/usr/bin/tcsh" -o "$SHELL" = "/bin/csh" ]; then
  eval `dircolors -c`
  eval `dircolors -b`
export LS_OPTIONS='-FN --color=auto -h'

export PAGER=less
export LESS="-MM -i"
export LESSCHARSET="latin1"
export LESSKEY="/etc/lesskey"
export LESSOPEN='|lesspipe "%s"'

export MOZILLA_HOME="/usr/local/netscape"

export INPUTRC="/etc/inputrc"

export CLASSPATH=.:/usr/local/jgl3.1.0/lib/jgl3.1.0.jar
