Indeed. I can reproduce this on Debian Wheezy. It's though fixed in
later versions of zsh, i.e. will no more happen in Debian Jessie (the
next Debian Stable Release).

Not really a nice solution, rather a short hack:

Edit /usr/share/zsh/functions/Prompts/prompt_fade_setup as root and
change in line 34 %F{fadebar_cwd} to %F{$fadebar_cwd} (a dollar sign
is missing).

In case there should be a security update of zsh in Debian Wheezy, you
may need to redo this.
