I'm afraid I do not have access to the console as the machine the bug
appears on is a server residing elsewhere.

I can only experiment with remote logins, and this happens under xterm,
rxvt and ssh with TERM=xterm, xterm-color, vt100 or everything I've tried.

Everything works as expected, the problem does not appear.

Yes, this has been going on for about a month now. It happens during every
login session. Also, this it not limited to any machine or terminal
program from which I have logged in the server.

No. This is something I just can't do since it is a production server.

Sorry, my mistake. Should have been zsh-3.0.5-7.i386.rpm from
rawhide.redhat.com, before which I also tried zsh-3.0.5-6.i386.rpm from
ftp.redhat.com. 3.1.5 was taken directly from the Danish zsh mirror and
compiled locally with gcc

Thanks for the quick response!
