Installed zsh 4.0.6 and now cursor keys don't work fully


I have just installed zsh4.0.6 on to an HP machine, and now the cursor
keys function differently. I used to be able to scroll though the
history buffer, This still happens, but each recalled command is put
onto the end of the previously recalled command line in the history
buffer. ie it looks like this

ls -lals    cd /users2/gnu2

where as there should be 3 separate commands ls, ls -la,cd /users2/gnu2

Is there a simple fix ?

I was running  3.1.9  before I changed up to 4.0.6

Also the backspace key functions differently, as it is used, it will go
forward but only the same amount of characters that have been typed on
the command line, ie if I type ddd it will go forward 3 spaces and then
stop, if I type a further ddd it will go forward another 3 spaces (as I
press the backspace key) and then stop again.
