virtualenv has to block activate from trying to overwrite the prompt function. 

Users of venv can't do that, 3.6 added prompt but even None defaults to the current folder name.

If I may suggest either respecting the virtualenv variable or perhaps prompt=False

Specifically we've ran into this in powershell while making cmder stricter on the prompt over here:

Thanks, Jack
