But note that there are other cases where zsh does fine while bash
doesn't behave correctly, e.g.


zsh (after an "unsetopt PROMPT_CR") does fine. This case concerns the
output of a combining character, but I think that the input and output
are related. So, please, don't add a bug here when fixing the problem. :)

Another problem specific to bash:

vinc17@prunille:~/blah$ mkdir é
vinc17@prunille:~/blah$ echo [TAB]


vinc17@prunille:~/blah$ echo é/

If you type the right arrow several times, the cursor moves backward
and forward alternatively.
