Re: Pasting UTF-8 characters with bracketed-paste-magic seems broken in 5.1

Hi Axel, I was traveling on all day on Tuesday and have not caught up
on all zsh list mail until today.

OK, this most likely means that either:

(1) There is a problem handling multibyte characters in the built-in
read-commmand widget; or

(2) There is a problem with using ${PASTED#$KEYS} to remove multi-byte
characters from the beginning of the pasted text.

I'm still dealing with other post-travel stuff so may not get a chance
to look at this today, but perhaps that gives you some ideas.
