I'm experiencing replacement of all occurances of certain characters in the prompt and output of gnome-terminal (3.6.2 in Ubuntu 14.04), e.g.

prompt of gnome-terminal

(latin d is replaced with some kind of uppercase D in exponent and some other pixels below).

reset and clear don't help. Copying the output/prompt returns the character sequence without replacements.

Have you checked your .bashrc file? More specifically the $PS1 theme? –  King Shimkus Aug 1 '14 at 12:29
