Hi,

I use the same bash config on Linux, FreeBSD and Cygwin, for the most part,
and I just noticed that on my FreeBSD system the prompt is updating one
command too late.

root@kanga:/root$ pwd
/home/msoulier
root@kanga:~$ cd /root
root@kanga:~$ pwd
/root
root@kanga:/root$=20

As you can see, the prompt with my current location doesn't update until the
command _following_ my directory change.=20

root@kanga:/root$ echo $PS1
\[\033[1;32m\]\[\033[0;36m\]\u\[\033[1;32m\]@\[\033[0;36m\]\h\[\033[1;32m\]=
:\[\033[0;37m\]${SHORT_PWD}\[\033[1;32m\]$\[\033[0;37m\]

I'm wondering if this is a bash bug on bsd, or if I'm doing something wrong.

Has anyone seen this?

Thanks,
Mike
