Re: zsh login going remarkably slow

Could it be that it's rebuilding ~/.zcompdump every time? After a system upgrade I started having that problem: .zcompdump was re-generated even if it existed. I didn't figure out the root cause but just started using the -C switch to compinit. This made it fast again.

i just installed zsh on both my freebsd boxes.
on one of them it works like a charm. on the other, it doesn't.

for this other box, it takes a long time for the prompt to appear.
also for it to re-appear when i su to root.

this /etc/zshrc file are used for both:

umask 022

i tried recompiling zsh, but that didn't make no difference.
i don't know how to capture the output of zsh -x.

zsh -x > file doesn't work, and my entire shell gets twisted after
running zsh -x.

last but not the least, i was wondering if anyone could help me
split my prompt line up. i've tried this here. it works, but i get
an error message saying there's no such command followed by a paste
of the 2nd line here. if it's due to the whitespace below PROMPT,
well i kinda want it there because it's superneat.
