Re: Why isn't zsh sourcing .zshenv ?

It would appear that some of your dot-files are being read or your
prompt would not have all that unexpanded promptsubst fodder in it.

That seems logical, right? But here's the weird thing:

$ echo;ls -l ~/.zs*;echo

zsh: no matches found: /Users/luomat/.zs*

No .zsh* files at all… except that the unexpanded PROMPT keeps showing up.

Does this also affect a new shell started after iTerm is open?  If
so, run as "zsh -x 2>zsh-err.txt" and then examine that file to
determine where things may be going wrong.

Is there anything in /etc/zshenv ?  Other than zsh being invoked
with the -f option, that file is the only place where sourcing of
~/.zshenv can be shut off.

$ cat /etc/zshenv
if [ -x /usr/libexec/path_helper ]; then
	eval `/usr/libexec/path_helper -s`

$  cat /etc/zshrc
# Correctly display UTF-8 with combining characters.
if [ "$TERM_PROGRAM" = "Apple_Terminal" ]; then
	setopt combiningchars

Here's another weird thing:

$ echo $ZDOTDIR


It seems like there is some sort of phantom process hanging around keeping my .zsh* in memory.

Maybe I'll try rebooting


OK, _now_ I am seeing an empty prompt and no ZDOTDIR set.

{moves ~/.zshenv back into place and Reboots again}

OK, now everything is working fine. No un-expanded prompt.

What… The… Heck?
