I liked it too!, but now... (see below)

I don't know... for me it has always worked... I can't directly help you.
Usually bash is set up to behave emacs-like (see man bash), so you can use
CTRL+a in place of HOME
CTRL+e in place of END
and many other emacs-shortcut, such as, for example,
ALT+f forward one word
ALT+b backward one word

If you use emacs, you'd find them comfortable;
if you don't use emacs, you'd find them comfortable too :-)
(HOME and END are so irritatingly *far* from the 'main' keyboard :-P)



p.s.: BTW, you know about CTRL+r, do you? nice!
