In emacs 23.1 when I use M-x term the prompt is rendered correctly to
whatever is defined on the PS1 environment variable. But in it
prompts whatever is defined in the PS1 but also before that, it prompts

The steps to reproduce it are quite simple:

emacs -Q
M-x term

The prompt is rendered like this:

0;address@hidden:~/Builds/address@hidden emacs]$

Since my PS1 is set to

PS1='address@hidden \W]\$ '

the expected result is:

address@hidden emacs]$

    Changing the value of TERM is a bad idea, unless you know exactly what
    you are doing.

    Using PROMPT_COMMAND is not a good idea, the same thing can be done with
    just setting the prompt.
