Description:
        Question already sent by address@hidden in Dec 2007, but got no 
response:
        http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-bash/2007-12/msg00070.html

Repeat-By:
        1. Open an xterm 
        2. run vi
        3. resize the xterm window
        4. quit vi
        5. write some long text on the prompt

        You will see that the text is not wrapped correctly. It overlaps the 
prompt.

Fix:
        Make it the default?
        Debian have this in /etc/bash.bashrc :

        # check the window size after each command and, if necessary,
        # update the values of LINES and COLUMNS.
        shopt -s checkwinsize

        I think it should be the default.
