This could be bash getting confused. Make sure you put the control
sequences within a \[ \] pair so that bash knows not to count the number
of chars in the escape sequence as visible characters.
where $col_prompt and $col_normal are the escape sequences to change
It really could be gnome-terminal (particularly since its OK at the
console), but I know I had this trouble when I didn't do the above.
