10.1 EDK - Launching an Xbash shell from DOS intermixes the DOS prompt with the bash prompt

Description

Launching an Xbash shell from DOS intermixes the DOS prompt with the bash prompt. How can I obtain the normal bash behavior?

Solution

To work around this problem, press Enter until the bash prompt shows up. Once you are on the bash prompt, type 'exit'. The exit command will cause the DOS shell to terminate, leaving only the bash shell.

This problem has been fixed in the latest 10.1 Service Pack available at:
