well i used this to enable command line history "browsable" by up/down 
arrows. i don't use emacs itself so i didn't now these two emacs keys... 
thanks for information. i guess i should lear a bit of emacs ;)
i'll use ctrl-a and ctrl-e now, but i recall someone reporting that even 
with set -o emacs home and end keys work properly... so it is now 
question of not understanding what's going on in my computer... it 
should work, i guess...
