You're witnessing effects of the new PROMPT_SP option, apparently combined either with some race condition on echoing the newlines you're typing, or with an odd right-margin line-wrap behavior of your terminal emulator.

Thanks, I disabled PROMPT_SP for now, since it's on by default. I don't deal with long lines in the ZLE that much and I'd rather not see that "%" on a blank line where I'm not sure it's doing me any good (when my prompt is already on the next line).

would it be reasonable to have an SPPROMPT parameter, or something similar, to control what's displayed there? i guess a default would be '%S%#%s' but the option would still be useful if it's output could be set to ''. IMHO the PROMPT_SP option is nice, and it would be better to turn off (or otherwise modify) it's verbose output, rather than turn off the option.
