Thank you for your response! I modified this prompt couple of times,
probably that's why it's like this. Anyway, I don't think this should cause
the problem. The PS1 variable is the one I use. I wanted to copy it here to
have exactly the example which I know that causes problems for sure.

Why don't you think this could cause the problem? You're missing the zero width leader/terminator for that section, bash doesn't know how long your prompt is (and thus when to wrap) without it.

Did you actually *try* the suggested fix before you replied?
