I'm a CJK user.
Note that there is nothing before “git” when I press “↑” on keyboard
I keep press “↑” on keyboard to to get out another history command
“vagrant ssh”,then I press “↓” on keyboard to get“git” back.
You will see that there is a additional “v” fom “vagrant” before “git”
But it's actually a “git” there ,not “vgit”. the "v" character is just like a ghost

here is a screen record,I'm Using windows 10 (64 bit), with chinese language enabled, same issue on windows 7 (64 bit),with a clean install of cmder 1.3.2

    lambda = "$"
    lambda = "("..env..") $"

@clijiac it‘s not a utf-8 issue
I‘ve tried
run chcp 65001 won't work. and some programs such as vagrant won't work in utf-8 code page in Chinese env
change the prompt from λ to $ here work the best and cost the least.

I have met exactly the same issue. Following @Kisesy 's advice, it works. Go to where cmder is installed, e.g., D:Program Files, the clink.lua file is in vendor sub-directory.

I have facing the same issue. I tested it on my Windows10 laptop, and this issue appear only when I add

chcp utf-8

to Cmder->Setting->environment


And I have also have downloaded the ConEmu to power my guess.
This issue doesn't appear in ConEmu.
It may be the mistake when calculating the length of character λ that lead to this issue.

This issue still persists. Solution for the latest release of cmder (version 1.3.8) can be found here.
