I think you have reported this issue to the wrong package. The root package is not responsible for setting the shell prompt when logging in as the root user.
The root package is the numerical analysis framework developed at CERN: http://root.cern.ch
I reassign this to bash since this is my best guess. If this is not correct, please hand it over to whoever you think is responsible.
This does not look like the default configuration of bash. Please provide the output of the following command:
# echo $SHELL $PS1 $PROMPT_COMMAND
Thanks ... it comes from a mix of I made in the .bashrc years after years!
sorry for the disturb
