You meant enter the text produced with (insert "echo \"\e[33mhello\e[0m\"").

The escape code is implemented by applying an overlay to the text
following it (see `ansi-color-apply-on-region').  The problem seems to
be that the reset sequence is translated to no face, so nothing is
applied (see `ansi-color-apply-overlay-face'), and the yellow overlay
gets extended despite the `ansi-color-freeze-overlay' modification-hook
because `eshell-output-filter' (and `eshell-send-input') let-bind

I'm not sure why `inhibit-modification-hooks' needs to be let-bound at
all, but just binding it to nil around string insertion seems to be

Subject: [PATCH v1] Let ansi-color overlay hooks work in eshell (Bug#27407)

* lisp/ansi-color.el (ansi-color-make-extent): Add
`ansi-color-freeze-overlay' to `insert-behind-hooks' as well.
* lisp/eshell/esh-mode.el (eshell-output-filter): Let-bind
`inhibit-modification-hooks' to nil while inserting the string.
