I also use paludis :)

And as at least one Gentoo user is reading this: I even tried 'paludis
-i zsh --dl-reinstall always', which recursively rebuilds all
dependencies of zsh (i. e. half of my system), but didn't fix the issue.

Unfortunately, no combination of downgrading to app-shells/zsh-4.3.4-r1
and removing zsh-completion doesn't fix the issue.

My usual setup is a ~/.zshrc file, which sources half a dozen files from
~/.config/zsh/ containing the actual configuration (prompt, alias,
completion, ...). But the default gentoo ~/.zshrc (the 'simple .zshrc'
that I posted) also provokes the same error.
