The problem I think is that the eshell prompt is read-only but this
doesn't forbid user to write in this zone and because the prompt have
also rear-nonsticky property, the new character entered are made
read-only and eshell when it try to delete this characters return "text
read only".
Didn't look deeper where this happen though.
