Here is another case of a complaint about prompt display bugs when the
prompt occupies a single line and contains invisible characters.  I was
able to repeat the original poster's display bugs on cygwin when using
rxvt, bash 3.1.14, readline 5.1 compiled with multibyte support using the
ncurses 5.5 library.  I had to undo the line wraps from the PS1 in the
OP's email (use space instead of newline).

Hi,
Please let me describe the issue for you:
After set the PS1 in .bashrc to :
- ---8<--------------------------------------------->8---
PS1="\[\e]2;\w  --  address@hidden@\H  hangsps:\j    \d
\t\a\]\[\e[31;1m\][\[\e[36;address@hidden
\[\e[33;1m\]\W\[\e[31;1m\]]\[\e[34;1m\]\[\e[32;1m\]\$ \[\e[37;1m\]"
- ---8<--------------------------------------------->8---

If type "ls /usr/src" twice, it will show "ls /usr/src/usr/src".

Is there something wrong in the PS1? And how can I fix this issue?

Advance Thanks!
