I copied /lib/terminfo/r/rxvt-unicode from a machine that
had it to ~/.terminfo/r/rxvt-unicode on the the machine that
didn't have it. The only difference I’ve noticed with this
fix is that readline will scroll long lines of input on a
single line instead of wrapping it (to see this, type a long
line in bash). I read somewhere that readline uses its own
terminal info database instead of terminfo (any info on
updating readline’s database would be appreciated).
