Expected result:

When line overflows, "should" add a "line feed" in the terminal, showing the rest of the characters in the "new line".

Actual Result:

When characters reach end of line, instead of adding a new line to put those characters, the characters overwrite the same line. Pressing backspace to delete characters produces the whole line to disappear, even the command prompt.

Reproduce

Just need to change to a deep down dir in the tree and type a command that extends beyond the window size. Instead of going to a new line, overwrites actual line.
