I guess this is probably because your terminal emulation doesn't match
what barebox assume.

I personally connect from Linux via the serial line with kermit to my
target. Kermit has a simple ~/.kermrc file that looks like this:

    set line /dev/ttyS0
    set baud 115200
    set handshake none
    set flow-control none
    set carrier-watch off
    set escape-character ^X
    log session ~/.kermlog

Kermit is oblivious to any ANSI escape sequences, so my X11 terminal
emulates them. Here I use the rxvt-unicode binary `urxvt`. The effect is
that the "edit" commands works.
