I don't know.  I tried this very quickly and PS1 kept getting overwritten
by the assignment in /etc/bash.bashrc.  At that point I moved on and went
to work out.  I'm satisfied that it's not a redisplay problem.

You might make sure that the values that get assigned to PS1 are identical
whether you use or assign PS1 directly at the prompt.
