is \h supposed to work on Linux (Ubuntu feisty)?

I get:

$ mclient -l mal -d demo -H
MAPI  = monetdb at localhost:50000
QUERY = \h
ERROR = !SyntaxException:parseError:\h
        !SyntaxException:parseError:^<identifier> expected

However, readline functionality is present: Ctrl-p, Ctrl-n, Ctrl-a, Ctrl-e
all work correctly.
