TERM setting influences `case' reserved word

Hi there, 
I am using zsh 2.6-beta10, with history patches in archive/337 and 376.
I compiled it with gnu termcap 1.3 and gcc 2.7.0 on a sparcstation running
SunOS 4.1.3. I have a very surprizing problem. Certain settings of the TERM 
environment variable make the `case' reserved word change its behaviour, and a 
statment lime `case $i in' yields `command not found: case'. For example, 
TERM=xterms produces the problem, while TERM=xterm and TERM=xterm24 do not! 
I am not sure whether the problem is platform dependent. I'll try to reproduce
it on other accounts I have (I installed zsh everywhere) and report my findings
All the best,
