I can get some Ctrl-letter keys to work by doing things like:

"\x1": kill-whole-line # binds C-a to kill-whole-line

but \x15 does not work as expected (trying various codes indicates
that most C-letters can be bound in this way, but a few can't).

This is related to the tty settings. If I do a "stty kill undef",
then the

 "\C-u": kill-whole-line

is taken into account. A "stty kill ^u" makes it fail again.

Confirmed. I'm not clear on whether that should be happening. And this seems to have no bearing on bindings such as "\M-p", which still don't work.

This bug still exists, but I'm no longer sure to which package it should be assigned. I come across the bug in bash 4.2, which doesn't seem to depend on any version of libreadline now (e.g. bash 4.2-5).
