Bash Version: 5.0
Patch Level: 17
Release Status: release

        I have colored my prompt with colors, using PS1 and PS0.

        PS1 ends with a color definition, so the command entered is colored.
        PS0 resets the color so the output has the standard colors.
        I have actived colored-stats, so when I use tab completion, the colors 
I use in the command doesn't show in the tab completion.

        Problem 1
        If the list starts with a file, only the 1st file is colored with the 
PS1 color.
        If the list starts with a folder, the colors are ok.

        Problem 2
        when I list the content of a folder with ls, the color is ok (white in 
my case, until I reach a folder,
        it then switches the color of the following files to grey.

        I tried looking in the bash code to try to find the problem, but I 
cannot locate the part of the code for that (not experienced in C)
        Normally, readline should be the part I am looking for, but I also have 
readline installed in my system, so it should be in it?
        (tried to remove the readline package in my system to be sure, but it 
wants to remove systemd, so I didn't)

        it seems to also do this with 5.1-rc1

        add "set colored-stats on" in ~/.inputrc (may need to restart the shell)
        add at the end of PS1: "(\[\€[38;5;220m\]" , for example
        add for PS0: "\[\e[38;5;15m\]"

(I tried to send it with bashbug on my system, but I didn't see it coming in 
the list, so sending it again)
