Hrm again.  Nothing interesting happens in zle_resetprompt() as far as
I can tell:

    if (zleactive)


redisplay(UNUSED(char **args))
    moveto(0, 0);
    zputc(&zr_cr);              /* extra care */
    tc_upcurs(lprompth - 1);
    resetneeded = 1;
    clearflag = 0;
    return 0;

So unless the curses library is doing something wacko, I can't find
any reason why it would be a problem to reset the prompt before /
independently of calling zrefresh().

However, adjustwinsize() it is literally the only place
zle_resetprompt() is called; usually resetting the prompt is done via
a widget if at all.

Out of curiosity, what happens if you put a "sleep 5" somewhere in
your init files?  I'm wondering if there's some kind of race between
the terminal getting opened and the first attempt to output something.
