The zsh-entry you sent me is exactly the one I have in my /etc/termcap.  I  
think its actually the one thats supplied by Next, since I don't remember  
having modified my entry.  So this doesn't change my problem.

I tried the "vs100" and found out, that the specific update bug, I reported  
is fixed by vs100, but then another update bug appears: when inserting into  
the first line of a command thats longer than one line, the part from the  
cursor to the end of the line is not updated.  So my guess is, that a fix of  
next's vt100 termcap entry is possible, by taking some part out of the vs100  
termcap, but I am completely unfamiliar with vt100 escape codes and termcap  
entries.  Maybe someone who knows about these things could fix it?  Thanks in  
advance for any efforts!  I would really like to always use the newes zsh
