Line editing not working in to_erl

I've recently repackaged an old application to run on an upgraded 
server, and after installing it I noticed that when using the release 
init script's "attach" command (in other words, "to_erl"), line editing 
doesn't work, while it works fine when running the release's "erl" command.

The strange thing is that on a test VirtualBox VM, with the same 
operating system version, and installing the app using the same 
pre-compiled package, I can't reproduce the problem.

I've found some reports of similar issues that were related to SSH and 
terminal handling, but the problem happens in the server also when 
connecting locally via a console, while on the VM it works both ways.

Has anyone ever seen this behavior?
