First off, as I am not sure how to even describe this issue, I am not sure if this is a repeat post of somewhere else and if it is I apologize in advance, however I have run into a bit of a snag.

I did an emerge world on my system today at which point when I logged back in, when I attempt to issue an "ls" on a directory with a significant number of files (say /usr/portage/) it would appear as though the console width is being calculated incorrectly...

For example, at the end of the line where one would expect nothing, I get a single character and on the new line the continuation of the file or directory name.

This does not appear to be an issue inside of something like nano, links or other command line utilities so I think that it is just bash related.
(Assumption)

I am running on a Powerbook G4 17" HR 5,9 and have ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="ppc ~ppc"

This is probably a configuration file issue somewhere, however I do not have the faintest idea of what I should be looking for.

Thank you in advance.
