The problem is that the last char of the prompt (the space) should be
rear-nonsticky, but if the others are rear-nonsticky and are not
front-sticky, then indeed you can't erase them but you can insert
anything inside them.  So I think the better fix is to make the prompt
(including the trailing space) both rear-nonsticky and front-sticky.

Does the patch below fix the problem?
