ok, so i applied all the patches i found and it's ok now ;)
more seriouisly i used bash-3.0-fixes-3.patch 
and readline-5.0-fixes-1.patch
the patches are available from the lfs web site -> patches -> download 
-> all patches section -> {readline, bash}
the second one (for readline) seems to be the one which soleved my problem
