Cygwin 1.7.x upgrade: Xterm history messes up prompt

I just upgraded to the latest X11 bits yesterday and now when I pull up
command history (i.e. Esc + k,l keys), my prompt gets messed up.  For
example, if my prompt were as follows:

[ABCDEFG]: dgreer > 

... and I start going through the history of my commands, my command ends up
as follows:

[ABCDEFG]: dgls //somebox/somefolder

Has anyone else experienced this?  Seems like some bugs were introduced.
