Are you sure these are the same things? I'm not.

But I thought so first, too. :-) There's no sleep or such in
RoboSloNE's report and it's about SHARE_HISTORY which
zsh-workers/32682 isn't (IIRC).

I think he rather argues, that Ctrl-R should already reread the
history from disk and not only the next command (or an empty command
by just pressing enter).
