My trick of setting LINES to limit how many menu lines are printed
messes up the prompt line if I press tab at the end of a line after a
section number has been inserted, the text on the line is repeated:

% man 3 printf an 3 printf

With the cursor on the A above the hat.  However, doing a zle -R in
my custom complete function fixes it.
