Maybe this mechanism interacts with the ESC key?

Well spotted, Roger! Yes I get the same message if I press the TAB key
repeatedly, And the 3691 things it wants to list are indeed the commands
available to me.
TAB is the default completion key, so that makes sense.

multiple ESC's don't do anything on my BASH... but here's a possibility...
I'm in "vi" edit mode in my bash -- ESC can't be used for Meta, since
it's used for changing vi modes.

I use the 'high bit' for maybe that, or the fact that I'm
in vi mode?
