Yes, the readline module is broken in Python 3. Underlying C library operates C strings and use locale-depended C functions to split it on Unicode characters. The Python wrapper always uses the UTF-8 encoding for converting between Python strings and C strings. It works only on UTF-8 locales. get_begidx() and get_endidx() don't correctly work at all for non-ASCII data. We should use locale encoding for converting.

Proposed patch makes the readline module to use locale depending coding functions instead of default UTF-8. It also corrects indices for get_begidx() and get_endidx().
