I have a unique issue, under bash 2.05b and readline 4.3 it works fine, but
under bash 3.00 and readline 5.0, my command line shows only 33 characters
then wraps to the next line. Any ideas or suggestions.

This patch from Chet hasn't made it to the FTP site yet, but it worked
for me.  It fixes that problem for multiline prompts.

Applied that patch, still happens, but not at 33 characters, it seems to be random now.
