I'd say definitely a bug if reset doesn't help, but reset may be unfixable for inescapable historical reasons - the same reason I avoid terminals as much as I can - VT100-descended terminals are too cluttered with crud to be bug-free, and that includes st. In fact it includes any terminal which will work with most ncurses apps.

Anyway, if reset doesn't work, "stty sane" may fix your problem. A longer-term workaround would be to include a cursor-setting escape code in your prompt.
