Urxvt character artifact problem.

Here's the problem:

When I use the up/down arrows to scroll through recently used commands, sometimes characters "stick" so that it looks like I have a chunk of a recent command in the line. Backspace does not delete these and they don't do anything if I hit Enter.

They disappear if I resize the window (or do anything that forces the window to refresh itself).

Some files:


alias go='startx'
alias ls='ls --color=auto'
alias pacman='pacman-color'
alias sudo='sudo ' 
alias cp='cp -ivr'
alias mv='mv -iv'

#PS1='[\u@\h \W]\$ '
PS1='\[\e[0;32m[\]\e[0;37m\]\u\[\e[m\] \[\e[1;34m\]\w\[\e[m\] \[\e[0;32m]\]\[\e[0;37m\]\$ \[\e[m\]\[\e[0;32m\] '

complete -cf sudo

export XTERM='urxvt'
export OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=gnome

extract () {
     if [ -f $1 ] ; then
         case $1 in
             *.tar.bz2)   tar xjf $1        ;;
             *.tar.gz)    tar xzf $1     ;;
             *.bz2)       bunzip2 $1       ;;
             *.rar)       unrar x $1     ;;
             *.gz)        gunzip $1     ;;
             *.tar)       tar xf $1        ;;
             *.tbz2)      tar xjf $1      ;;
             *.tgz)       tar xzf $1       ;;
             *.zip)       unzip $1     ;;
             *.Z)         uncompress $1  ;;
             *.7z)        7z x $1    ;;
             *)           echo "'$1' cannot be extracted via extract()" ;;
         echo "'$1' is not a valid file"

EDIT: Picture

in the image you'll see a line "emacs cd ~/.wine/dosdevices/" and all it does is cd to that directory. The emacs is one of these artifacts I'm refering to. It was put there from using the up/down keys to scroll through commands. Same goes for the wine32pacman line.
