I bet you did something to upgrade bash and it got upgraded without the new
libreadline or something...  That happened to me before.  I suggest you make
an extra passwd entry for root with sash as the login shell..

Here's mine (I use shadow passwords, soooo)

root:x:0:0:root:/root:/bin/bash
sash:x:0:0:root:/root:/bin/sash
