Correction: the behaviour has now become *worse*.

Pressing ‘/’ will not send the ‘/’ keystroke to the terminal, but
instead waits as though that is a prefix for the next keystroke. This
is completely unwanted with “rfc1345”, as originally reported.

What is new now is that the keystrokes are sent in the wrong order.

For example, pressing ‘/’ then ‘q’ will result in the terminal
receiving the sequences in reverse order.

So typing “/quit” sends “q/uit”.

Please investigate what has regressed to make ‘/’ and ‘Ctrl+U’ (and
anything except ‘&’) behave like unwanted prefix keys.
