Playing with prompts. (Question #3)

Check out the following output from my router running Cisco IOS. It is displaying an unusual prompt to issue IOS commands even though its hostname as determined by using the "show running-config" command is simply "Router". How was this achieved?

MYSTERY_PROMPT$show running-config | include hostname
hostname Router
If you think you know the answer, use the comments to let me know. If nobody gets the right answer, I will publish the answer in a few days.
