That is not a bug.  Some people prefer C-a to always go to the
beginning of the line, because one can always use C-c C-a to go to the
beginning of the input.

   The customization code is 
   approximately that:

'(comint-use-prompt-regexp-instead-of-fields t)

This one is the reason for the behavior.  The reason why C-a stops at
the beginning of the input when this variable is nil is due to the
field text property, which is not used if the variable is t.  If you
want to both set comint-use-prompt-regexp-instead-of-field to t and
have C-a move to the beginning of the input, you can just bind C-a to
comint-bol-or-process-mark.  (This is the command normally bound to
C-c C-a).
