My prompt is (from the script below) "PS1='$PWD> '". All of the

Is 'printable' different than plain old printable?
Anyway, I can repeat this (and other concomitant artifacts, too).
It looks like a bug.
I like current directory feedback, too, but I hate it in the prompt.
Putting it in the window title bar is nice, however. If you like that
idea, try this or something similar:
PS1=$'\[\e]0; \u :: \W (\w)\a\]\!> '
