I'm not sure it is an error / bug \\c cut the end char 
and the shell redraw over the your line 
with out the \\c you should able to get the same result
saw zh_TW.Big5 (instead of ) 
address@hidden:~$ g5

I'm not sure this the correct result, since there is no 100% sure 
the shell will not draw over the char everytime. I try a loop with 
both case... they randomly show and not show
