Exactly what have you tried? Please post the output of 'bind -V' in your
bash shell. FWIW, I could reproduce your behavior when "output-meta" is
set to "off".

This doesn't affect readline (which is what's giving you the problem).

As I said before, you should have *all four* of
set meta-flag on
set convert-meta off
set input-meta on
set output-meta on
in your ~/.inputrc. Note: these *aren't* bash commands, these are
readline options; if you want to have the same effect from the bash
command prompt, you have to use "bind 'set output-meta on'" instead.
