Sorry, limited network access at the moment so partial
poorly formatted reply.

This is indeed because it looks like a command subst that
went wrong. I think the math aspect is actually irrelevant.

That appears to be important but I'm not sure why.

However, I think I do understand the basics of this.

When we  do the recursive parse of the command subst we
abort and flush the history on failure. But inside a string it
doesn't bother finishing off the history line. That's important in
this case because we're using that line directly as the string
we get from the nested lex.

Full patch when my laptop finds its way to Wi-Fi but for a taster:

In herrflush() , !strin should be (!strin || lex_add_raw) for which 
the static before lex_add_raw in lex. c has to go; inside the loop, in
addition to hwaddc() the return from ingetc() has also to be
passed to addtoline(). The !lexstop tests need tweaking as a consequence.

If that was too garbled I will be doing this properly next week. 

Haven't seen any side effects but they are endemic in the lexer /
ZLE interface so some playing around wil be necessary.
