FYI, if it's any help, i tested this in the following, too:

  * Terminal.app
  * iTerm2
  * Alacritty

I used a multi-line prompt where the top line had a length of COLUMNS, COLUMNS +
1, or COLUMNS - 1. I tried both with single-byte characters only and with mixed
single/multi-byte characters.


  % zle-line-init() zle reset-prompt
  % zle -N zle-line-init
  % PROMPT=${(l<$COLUMNS><abc>):-}$'\n%~ %# '
  ~ % echo foo

Current behaviour: The echo output is swallowed up by the next prompt.
Patched behaviour: The echo output remains unmolested.

PS: When i was testing it i had changed the comparison in both places; as
mentioned, the patch as submitted only changes the first one.
