In, line 477, I find this code:

        # Reading the initialization (config) file may not be enough to set a
        # completion key, so we set one first and then read the file
        if 'libedit' in getattr(readline, '__doc__', ''):
            readline.parse_and_bind('bind ^I rl_complete')

I am using pyreadline on Windows, where readline.__doc__ is None.

So the above code crashes with this exception:

Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
