It is reset to emacs mode I believe. I have to hit set -o vi again.

I'll try that, thanks. However I always thought, bracket paste mode is

I don't use any distribution.
Here is an example:
0 59928 chrisbra@debian ~ % bindkey -L |grep 200
bindkey "^X^[[200~" _start_quoted_paste
bindkey "^[[200~" _start_paste
# Here I pasted the string zsh using Ctrl-V:
0 59929 chrisbra@debian ~ % ^[[200~zshG
# Here I pasted the usual way hitting <shift><insert>, then pressing
# <esc> stops working:
1 59929 chrisbra@debian ~ % wget -c 'https://github.com/vim/vim/issues/1204'

# Now hitting esc won't go back into command mode.
2 59933 chrisbra@debian ~ % set -o |grep "^vi"
# Looks like it is still on. Hm, that is strange. However when I press

# Entering set -o vi fixes that.
Linux wird nie das meistinstallierte Betriebssystem sein.
Bedenken Sie nur, wie oft man Windows neu installieren muß.
