ヒーローだよ! 本当に助かた. ありがとうね...

The only thing I had to fix was having the prompt act normally again (with oh-my-posh / posh-git / psreadline). I discovered that it was $Env:_CONDA_ROOT\shell\condabin\Conda.psm1 that was screwing it up, so I commented out lines 268-275, like so...

<#if (Test-Path Function:\prompt) {
    Rename-Item Function:\prompt CondaPromptBackup
} else {
    function CondaPromptBackup() {
        # Restore a basic prompt if the definition is missing.
        "PS $($executionContext.SessionState.Path.CurrentLocation)$('>' * ($nestedPromptLevel + 1)) ";

And it finally gave me my prompt back, instead of the otherwise unhelpful PS > prompt.
