reason is:

when I localy start a terminal, it recoginzes it is in an X enviroment
and sets the PROMPT_COMMAND.

but remote he doesn not, because there is not X enviroment. therefore
there is no hardstat line.

for having a prompt (%h) all the time, you need to insert this (or
similar, format up to you) line into the .bashrc for your user _AND_ all
users you "su - " to. so eg root user.

export PROMPT_COMMAND='echo -ne
