Well, hence the exit after 10 characters, which was what made the
behaviour actually compatible... I still consider the behaviour before
my previous patch confusing well past the point of unusability.

I'm prepared to consider another option, such as zle_ignore_eof (meaning
that ignore_eof really did what csh used to, and zle_ignore_eof would be
my current proposal, or something such), or anything other than what was
there just before...
