Running plain Emacs with emacs -Q then running ansi-term, if I input some long text in the prompt such that the text breaks into the next line (without hitting Return), then I hit C-x 2 to create another frame, for some reason the prompt is half repeated.

Is there a way to fix this?

In my actual setup, I use zsh with a multiline prompt, so that everytime I invoke a command that creates a temporary frame, like helm-mini, the prompt is repeated creating a mess out of my terminal.

  • I can confirm this on Emacs 27.0.50. No idea why it happens or how to fix it though :/ – Tyler Aug 16 '18 at 17:22
