OK, that's useful information.

Do you log in to the compute server and run xterm there with the display
pointing back to your local X server, or do you start your xterm on the
local machine and then rlogin?

Are you always using ssh?

If you start several login sessions at a time, does it affect all of them?

OK, then it's most likely an stty problem of some kind.  What happens if
you first start "zsh +Z" and then do "setopt zle"?

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

I meant the X server process, not the compute server machine, but if you're
only doing remote login and from several different places, the question
doesn't apply.

You are able to install a new zsh on the compute server, though?  So you
have some adminstrator privileges for it?  If not, by what method are you
starting zsh when you log in?

Incidentally, are any other users having the same problem with zsh?
