Bash Version: 2.05
Patch Level: 1
Release Status: release

        bash fails to print the prompt correctly.
        when it prints the value of PS1, it ``rewinds'' to the 
        beginning of the line, which causes trouble.

        simply enter:

        % echo -n bug

        you will *NOT* see "bug" printed. I think `bug' is actually
        printed, but when bash prints the prompt, it rewinds to the
        first column, overriding the text.

        similarly, try `cat' on a file whose last line does not end
        with a newline. you won't see the last line printed.
