You have a bug in your PS1 value.  Bash uses \[ and \] to delimit
non-printable sequences in the prompt.  So, your PS1 should at least be

\[\033]61;\u@\H\007\]\u@\H \W>
Note the closing '\]'.

Also, ESC] doesn't look like a valid ANSI escape sequence What exactly are
you trying to accomplish with your prompt?
