Re: Issue with the titlebar
Putting title-setting escape sequences in PS1 has the unfortunate side
effect that the shell thinks that it has output those characters, and
shrinks the length of the line readline has to work with by that
A better option is to define PROMPT_COMMAND to echo the appropriate sequence.
