For the record, this is my interpretation of Pavel’s demo:

If you press a key (other than lowercase “q”) or resize the terminal, it displays the terminal dimensions in the top-left corner. Without Readline, the dimensions are updated when the terminal resizes.

When Readline is used (interactive mode, or simply “import readline”), the reported dimensions are static, which I understand is the bug.

Documentating this quirk may be a good start.
