So far I wasn't able to reproduce the error in a setup where I can
debug it yet. I've run the testsuite successfully about 70 times each
for the dynamically linked zsh as well as the statically linked zsh on

I'm now back to trying to reproduce it on that (linux amd64) machine
were I initially run into it a single time. With some luck, I may be
able to trigger it and then debug it.
