[erlang-questions] erlang shell command editing

When typing commands into the erlang shell one notices that the cursor 
occassionally jumps around (e.g. in order to match ()'s). Is there a way
to disable this behavior at the erlang shell, so that only literal keystrokes
entered by the user are echoed?

Doing so would help with automated testing using dejagnu (Tcl/Expect), which
seems to get confused by the cursor motion.
