[IronPython] delete key on MAC OS X

Are you using the -X:TabCompletion command line switch? If so, then only some of the control keys are handled and the MAC OS X delete is probably not one of them. If you are not using the -X:TabCompletion command line switch, the problem may lie in the System.Console implementation.

Sorry my confusion.

I finally found a tricky result. Any conrole key input,  "delete",
"contol+w" and others
not work properly in the intial IP interactive session.
Then stop ipy job using ^Z key and go back to IP interactive sessin
by fg command,  every controle key involving ^D works as I wish.

$ fg
