Bash Version: 4.4
Patch Level: 12
Release Status: release

Bash rewrites on the same line if I exeed line terminal width lenght.

I write a long line on the terminal and when I exceed the terminal width
lenght it does not go on the next line, but rewrites on the same.
If I continue the line again till the end of terminal width, it will now
go on the next line.
So I think it is a termcaps misconfiguration (?).
For example if the real terminal width is 100, bash thinks he has 200,
so it waits the 200th char to go on the next line.

I hope I was explicit enough. I can send a screenshot of the issue.
