In my case it is, because the shell has been through /etc/zshenv, and
the bug still occurs.  As lastc is simply a flag that data should be
flushed, it should arguably be initialised to '\n' anyway.  In any
case, it worries me that inputline() is setting lastc to space when it
fails, implying the last input character has changed when the whole
problem is it hasn't --- it's effectively setting the `there's input
data to flush' flag when it knows there isn't any.  That's why I think
the simplification is correct, even if there's something else wrong.
