    When I type a command, the line wraps at about half the width of the window, but it overwrites the beginning of the line (no line feed). That means I have to keep the window as wide as possible and use lots of line breaks when entering long commands. SVN commands are a good example. I've tried searching for a solution, but I'm probably using the wrong terms to describe what happens. Is there a way to set this wrap point, or to get a line feed when it wraps, or otherwise avoid the problem?

    I use a terminal often and this gets to be a major annoyance after a while. Please help or at least tell me how to search for this.

    Thanks,
