Nope, using the mouse works fine.

               true            false
  true         [1]               [2]

  false        [3]               [4]

[1],[2]: show the same bahaviour than [3]
[3]: this is the default show the described behaviour in my first mail
[4]: both 'false' is nearly what you would expect (scroll back and stay 
there); the input line keeps filling up with 5;2~, though, and i have to 
scroll back to bottom manually

i suspect my zsh conf. is messed up, or my keyboard is sending some strange 

i forgot to mention my system config yesterday (was a bit late, sry. ;)):

- os x 10.4 - ppc
- the X11 pkg from apple XFree86 4.4.0
- xterm -v says: XFree (184)
- zsh 4.3.4 (fink)
- keyboard is a ps/2 plugged into a ps/2-usb adapter *g*
