Thank you for the report.  Please keep bug-bash in the recipient list
for any follow-ups so that the group can participate.

This behavior that you describe is the behavior that bash uses when it
does not have termcap/terminfo for your terminal type.

Does 'clear' do anything in your present environment?

  $ clear

Normally that would produce terminal escape sequences but if it
doesn't then that would be another indicator that your terminal is not
configured sufficiently.

What is your TERM variable?

  $ echo $TERM
