That comes from "s" within paramsubst(), which is just the minimally
modified parameter substitution string from the command line, which
should still be both metafied and containing tokens (the ability to
quote characters that look like tokens being the main use of
metafication). It's not the value of the parameter, which goes a
different way. The pattern just gets compiled once.
Here's an xxd of the complete expression from the backtrace --- the
exp=" and the final double quote before the newline are therefore not
part of the string (this is also a bit confusing since I've left in the
\x.. escapes put in by the debugger but they aren't immediately

The dodgy sequence is around "e2 80 83 ef bf bd" from byte 0xa4. That
83 is indeed a Meta, and it looks like it's the only one in the input.
Unmetafiying the following ef gives cf, which is not in the range that
would have caused it to be metafied.
So it looks like this did indeed get previously unmetafied when it
shouldn't. The question is where... If this is the case, the crash
could be to do with the lack of null determination rather than
misinterpretation of characters.
The text in that pattern has come from the $word in Sebastian's script:
Note that (barring accidents with /etc/zshenv) GLOB_SUBST is not on, so
$word should be substituted literally. This came from:
which contains evidently valid multibyte characters (they're fine in the
output I'm seeing but I don't dare mail them raw). xxd gives

Here we have "e2 80 93" where we previously had "e2 80 83 ef bf bd". The
93 becomes B3 on metafication, which should give "e2 80 83 B3", which
isn't what we've got.
The function readoutput() that inputs the word does do metafication.
That's no great surprise as part of the mayhem is evidently due to the
fact it has been metafied at some point. I've confirmed by stepping
through this gives 83 b3 [except gdb helpfully says \203\263, but that's
what you get with old technology].
However, when I hit getmatch() I've still got what I expect, the
correctly metafied input string with \203\263:
$11 = 0xb78a8d70 "\210\204m\212\001glogB\001\060\001/Diff/\001/Users/sgniazdowski/github/zsh-navigation-tools.git\001\060a87c8044c1c6677a38ccdabd36334cc2aaab496\002\006\"znt-tmux.zsh \263 initial commit of skylite21 submission\"\031"
So some option / variant behaviour / extraneous memory effect is coming
