Modules/readline.c contains a workaround for a bug in the readline emulation of libedit: that emulation uses a different starting offset for the history than the real readline.

In more recent versions of libedit (such as the one you can now download from <>) the bug has been fixed and the workaround causes problems.

The attached patch dynamicly detects if the workaround is necessary.

NOTE: Actually using the libedit requires a patch to, that version of libedit does not install libreadline.dylib, only libedit.dylib.
