[ROOT] patch for delete and arrow keys

Dear rooters,

on my machine, pressing the delete key while editing the rint command line
inserts a ~ and deletes nothing. Also using an arrow key after finding
something in history search mode inserts garbage. To make both keys work I
just need to edit a few lines in clib/src/Getline.c, as described by the
attached patch. This works very nice in my xterm, konsole and on the linux
console. Unfortunately I cannot say anything about different machines or
setups. Anyway, I would be happy if this change could somehow be included
in root.

Best wishes,
