i dont remember precisely, but theres a variable called PROMPT [or something similar] that you can set in your login scripts that will fix this. you might also want to check what your TERM is set to, if its something wierd, just reset in your login files [ex: TERM=xterm].
EDIT: sh2.05 is actually bash. bash is now the default sh for most distros that i can think of offhand.
