Default Lines messed up in Terminal after su

I wonder if anyone is witnessing similar behavior in the Terminal:

after any su command, the lines - carriage returns, on text output of any command, even a simple ls, run as a regular user are garbled, producing weird line breaks and text indentation...

This is only solved by exiting the term app and starting again. I'm using the Android Terminal app by Jack Palevich.

Anyone knows what's causing this and how to fix it. The first phone to have this issue is the Note 3 for me, Note II, Note before that no problems with the same app...
