Thanks, this is exactly what I needed to fix the issue on my end as well.

I'm curious if anyone who patched bash in this manner started seeing a weird
issue with long commands in the terminal? After building bash-4.2.29, long
commands would no longer break into multiple lines in gnome-terminal, and
would start overwriting the first line with a '>' character at the
beginning. After a lot of searching and attempts to fix it, I ended up just
using byobu (a terminal emulator using screen) to make the new line issue go
away. Any ideas what the root cause might be?

I would check PS1 especially if you have correctly escaped non-printing characters.
