[CentOS] CentOS and Bash History

Hi,

I was wondering if bash or inputrc has changed form CentOS v4 to CentOS v5?  
Reason I ask is at the bash cli I can type, for example 'su' and then with 
the up and down arrows I can scroll through my history and will only see the 
commands that begin with 'su'.  In CentOS 5 this isn't the case.

I have added some code to my inputrc file to make this work in CentOS 4 as 
follows:

# Search History for previous used commands
"\M-[A":history-search-backward
"\M-[B":history-search-forward
"\M-[C":forward-char
"\M-[D":backward-char

And this works well in CentOS 4 but I cannot get it to work in CentOS 5.
Anyone know why or what I have to change?
