 Is "\EOF" really what your file says here?  maybe \E isn't treated as
escape, so bash is looking for a literal "E" to be followed by "OF", and
then it will go to the end of the line.  (Try that, typing "EOF", and see if
the cursor jumps to the end of the line.)  If it does, then remove that line
from /etc/inputrc!
