IIRC, you need to wrap the non-printed characters with \[ and \].

Bash Version: 2.05
Patch Level: 8
Release Status: release

Description:
           When PS1 is set to produce coloured output via ANSI escape
           sequences, then long lines (longer than screen width) are
           wrapped and rewrite the prompt itself. It behaves like there be
           '\r' at the end instead of '\n'

Repeat-By:
           $ export PS1='\e[1;31m\w\e[0m\$ '
           $ write looooooooong looooong line
