bash 3.0 and readline 5.0

Since update to bash 3.0 my terminal windows show strange behavior: sometimes long lines are splitted into two.

In … put=gplain
is a paragraph about readline

Changes have been made to the Readline library being released at the same time as bash-3.0, readline-5.0, so that Bash can be linked against an already-installed Readline library rather than the private version in lib/readline.  Only readline-5.0 and later versions are able to provide all of the symbols that bash-3.0 requires; earlier versions of the Readline library will not work correctly.

Maybe we need an updated readline package and bash 3 should depend on it?

Bash 3.0 breaks midnight commander for me. MC hangs when starting up. Bash 3.0 also produces an error message when logging in. I don't have the text of it though, I've already downgraded to a stable bash.
