I have set everything in PS1 for a long time without any apparent issue,
even using extremely long command lines. In fact, I think I got this
from an early version of /etc/profile from Cygwin originally, and it
looks like Cygwin's /etc/profile still does something similar by setting
everything in PS1.
What symptoms should I expect to see using this method, or how would I
go about triggering a problem?
