The test is equivalent to running

zsh +Z -fsi <<< $'fc -p /dev/null 0 0\n:'

and expecting to see a command line prompt, which would have a "%" in
it --- the "<*%*" hieroglyphic says "look at standard output from
the test and do a pattern match against the pattern '%*'".

Instead, somehow you're managing to get the shell to produce the output
"HP-y5--5-Debian1# HP-y5--5-Debian1# HP-y5--5-Debian1#" before
the command line shows up.  Quite likely something run from /etc/zshenv,
at least there's nothing much else it could be.

I suppose the test could be a bit more sophisticated about this: it just
needs to prove you got the command line prompt eventually.
