Not so.  With this debug:

---

echo TERM = $TERM

# are we an interactive shell?
if [ "$PS1" ]; then
    case $TERM in
   xterm*)
      if [ -e /etc/sysconfig/bash-prompt-xterm ]; then
         PROMPT_COMMAND=/etc/sysconfig/bash-prompt-xterm
      else
         PROMPT_COMMAND='echo -ne "\033]0;${USER}@${HOSTNAME%%.*}:${PWD/#
$HOME/~}"; echo -ne "\007"'
      fi
      ;;
   screen)
echo doing screen
      if [ -e /etc/sysconfig/bash-prompt-screen ]; then
         PROMPT_COMMAND=/etc/sysconfig/bash-prompt-screen
      else
      PROMPT_COMMAND='echo -ne "\033_${USER}@${HOSTNAME%%.*}:${PWD/#$HOME/
~}"; echo -ne "\033\\"'
      fi
      ;;
   *)
echo doing default
      [ -e /etc/sysconfig/bash-prompt-default ] && PROMPT_COMMAND=/etc/
sysconfig/bash-prompt-default
       ;;
    esac

---

I get:

TERM = linux
doing default

The mystery remains.

Mike.
