This may be because of how your prompt is configured. You are using bash, correct? Look in your normal bash config files located in both /etc and within your home directory, and see if your PS1 variable is moving it. You may have to back it up and delete just to tell if it is the problem or not.

Thanks @corp769 for reply. I have .bashrc at home directory but only contain an alias, PS1 variable in /etc/profile file. I changed my PS1 variable for colorizing. I am guessing my PS1 variable is '\u@\e[0;34m\h\e[0m:\$ '.Does colorize cause to problem?

Thanks

Ok. I solve problem. Solution of problem that use colorize tags in square brackets.For example;

I was using '\u@\e[0;34m\h\e[0m:\$ ' for PS1 and this is cause the problem.
Problem solved with change PS1 with '\u@\[\e[34;1m\]\h\[\e[m\]:\w\$ '
