on the first screenshot (8.06.26pm), it's my securecrt on my mac, local shell with linux terminal emulation where I did an ssh to a linux box and set the PS1.
You can see the date/time on the right, but instead of going back to the left border for the prompt, the curosr stay after the date/time, the prompt is put on the right of the time, the first letter 'c' , the other part of the prompt is on the next line on the left.

configuring securecrt as a xterm terminal doesn't change anything.

(the local osx terminal has the same behavior).

The second screenshot 8.08.48pm, is the screenshot of the linux terminal of the linux box on xwindows (xterm), the date/time is on the right and the prompt is on the same line on the left.

I try iTerm terminal emulation on osx instead of securecrt or the osx terminal app, and I have the correct prompt with date/time on the right and prompt on the left on the same line. (configured a xterm or linux terminal mode).
