Bash Version: 4.0
Patch Level: 17
Release Status: release

Description:
        Starting a new instance of bash gives a prompt where the cursor
is right after my hostmane... ie right on top of my current directory.
So
if my prompt ends with "~/Desktop]$" the cursor will appear right on
top
of the "~" NOT in its regular position.

        Executing a command will result in the correct prompt however
hitting enter with no command typed gives the same problem. Not
exactly
a deal-braker but very annoying on occaision.

Repeat-By:
        Start bash (?) or at the prompt hit enter without typing
anything.

Fix:
        Type any text then hit enter. Problem still reoccurs though (see
above)
