Yes, this is a general problem.  This fix should be good enough.

I think there will be slight hiccups when there are a mixture of key
bindings for multibyte sequences and self-insert characters beginning
with the same bytes, but that's inevitable to some extent --- this should
certainly be no worse than before.  Bart ensured that even if we do
eventually need a self-insert it will work the way it always did, which
was fine in most cases, just a bit icky if you really needed the full
character to be inserted in good time.

(A volunteer to pick up ZLE testing would be useful.  Felix did quite a
lot of work on this some time ago which no one ever had the time to
