Tig crashes when searching if used as git pager

Bug #1851235 reported by Marco Trevisan (Treviño)

Bug Description

export GIT_PAGER="tig"
git log

or just

git log | tig

Then, write '/' and hit enter, tig will crash.

This is the backtrace when launching it as

git log | gdb -ex r -ex "set logging on" -ex "bt full" -ex quit --args tig

So it looks like more a readline issue
