So, it's either of these things:
- konsole and its bugs/features
- your $TERM settings
- your readline and its bugs/features
- your ~/.inputrc settings (see the readline man page)

It's hard to say what's right and wrong really, and whose fault it is.
I'm pretty sure it's not Python.  What happens if you try bash?

  tuva:~> bash
  grahn at tuva:~$ echo -n 'foo'
  foograhn at tuva:~$
