      Description

      As of the first release of MariaDB, the '\n' char no longer results in a CR/LF in the mysql prompt when it is included in MYSQL_PS1. This does not appear to be a problem in any of the mysql releases I have used (e.g. 5.1.6).

      e.g: my prompt:

       ** root@hazel ** ~ ** Mon Jul 21 15:49:06
      # set | grep -i mysql
      MYSQL_PS1=' \u ** \d ** \D\nsql> '

      results in:

       ** root@hazel ** ~ ** Mon Jul 21 15:49:21
      # mysql
      Welcome to the MariaDB monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
      Your MariaDB connection id is 2649

      Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the current input statement.

      Should have reported this a long time ago...
      Thanks for your time.
