Sakura & -current: cycle through previous commands breaks prompt?

I am running sakura 3.3.3:
andrew@ilium~$ sakura --version
sakura version is 3.3.3
Under Slackware -current. When cycling through previous terminal commands using the up and down arrows I see that the prompt vanishes. My prompt is set in ~/.bashrc as follows:

# Sets the look of the prompt
export PS1='\[\u@\H\w\]$ '
Long commands pasted into a Sakura window have the same effect.

I have been working on this issue for some time with no result and I would be grateful if somebody could shed light on an annoying issue...

The Sakura version at SlackBuilds is at 3.4.0. Can you check if this works better?
