Inside of process_output:

reverse the two blocks of code that follow:
(I don't have the code nearby, so going by memory..)
  /* convert easy-color codes into ASCII codes */
    clvl = COLOR_LEV(t->character);
  proc_color(i, ((clvl >= C_NRM) ? clvl : 0));

  /* add a prompt */
  strncat(i + 2, make_prompt(t), MAX_PROMPT_LENGTH);

if you reverse them, the prompt gets added before the color codes are

That should take care of your problem
