It's not so much a case of being broken as of working round the foibles
of various terminals.  It might well be possible to update the chunk of
code around line 1645 of zle_refresh.c marked "output the right-prompt
if appropriate" so that it's less likely to cause terminals to wrap, but
that will need some research.
