Re: Some questions (menu completion and two-line prompts)

Try something like

There are two factors here.  (1) each prompt style is responsible for
creating its own WINCH trap (the [win]dow [ch]ange signal) and (2) not
all terminal emulators send the signal.  adam2 doesn't define the trap.

The following probably does more work than necessary, but adam2 isn't
factored well for performing just the width computations.

       zle && echo '' && prompt_adam2_precmd && zle reset-prompt

(Without the "echo ''" the prompt climbs the window until it's the only
thing visible.  With it, one blank line is added at the bottom.)
