Reproduced on 3.3 head. Looking at the documentation of the C readline
library, it needs to know the length of the prompt in order to display
properly, so this seems to be an acknowledged limitation of the underlying
library rather than a bug on our side.

Still, this behavior is surprising and undesirable. I would suggest adding
a note to the docs for the readline module, directing users to write:

    input("foo> ")

instead of:

    sys.stdout.write("foo> ")
