This PR bin/170651 does in fact look valid. It looks like libedit only
partially picks up an LC_CTYPE change. Whether it shows '\OOO' or real
characters with bit 7 set changes immediately; whether it accepts
characters with bit 7 set changes only after doing something that causes
libedit to be reinitialized (such as 'set +o').
This is probably a bug in libedit and/or sh's use of it, although there
are bigger bugs in libedit and sh's use of it.
