It may not matter. According to the ile man page:

       One particular praise of ile is the way it completely dis­
       ables all its editing as soon as the subprogram attempts
       to do so itself, or for any reason switches into raw mode.
       This makes ile usable with just about any program.

So it is trying to keep out of bash's way, and possibly it will succeed.
Safer not to have it running at all when you are using bash though.
