Error when using REPL in PyMakr 1.0.0.b5-1 and hitting backspace

  • Steps to reproduce:

    1. Open PyMakr.
    2. Attach LoPy via ttyUSBx
    3. Enter any command, like print("Hello world!") and hit enter
    4. Go back to this command with arrow up, move around with the cursor and try changing some characters by deleting them with backspace.
    5. There are some strange reactions to that, like sudden "ESC" sequences popping up in the line.
    6. Go on editing like before using backspace and the error ensues.

    Here is the log:
