The sourcing of ~/.inputrc will not show up in the bash trace. If you are
desparate, you can use strace to see what files bash sources, but the
output is quite long and should not be posted here without an explicit

Igor's question about HOME is important - are you changing $HOME inside of
your .bashrc? It could be that bash IS attempting to source ~/.inputrc,
but at a time when ~ is incorrectly set. You can also set the INPUTRC
environment variable (prior to bash's execution) to tell bash to look
somewhere else, to ensure that your file is picked up during readline
