Maybe, just maybe... ;-) the cause lies in what you use as a shebang in your
script. If I do:
I get a dash subshell on my system which has apparently no command line editing
with readline configured and I get the cursor movement sequences printed
instead of being translated/executed by the terminal.
On the other side changing the shebang to "#/bin/sh" instead of "#/bin/bash"
didn't change the behaviour of that little script with the bound F1 key, works
just as before...
