FINALLY!!
I'm an old HPUX user and KSH and default vi mode command line editing are seemingly hard wired into my digits. BASH was really getting tiresome. This find will save my sanity (or what's left of it). Thanks for writing this!

Now if I could only remap the escape key to the spot God intended it to be...where the caps lock is. Anyone who used to use old HP workstations knows exactly what I'm talking about.

Tweezak,

Not sure if you'll see this, but if you'll create a file (I call mine .xmodmap-esc) with these lines:

clear Lock
keycode 0x42 = Escape

And then load it with:
xmodmap $FILENAME
