I seem to have too many colour escapes so it only works in some prompts - can someone please correct for me ?

PS1='\[\e[0:35m[\u@\e[0:33m\h\e[m \e[0:35m\w]\e[m \e[0:33m`git branch 2> /dev/null | grep -e ^* | sed -E  s/^\\\\\*\ \(.+\)$/\(\\\\\1\)\ /`\e[m\] \n$ '

Replace all colons with semi-colons. Colons are not meaningful in escape sequences for colors.
