Patch Level: 8
Release Status: release

        When PS1 is set to produce coloured output via ANSI escape
        sequences, then long lines (longer than screen width) are
        wrapped and rewrite the prompt itself. It behaves like there be
        '\r' at the end instead of '\n'

        $ export PS1='\e[1;31m\w\e[0m\$ '
        $ write looooooooong looooong line
