Sorry for the late reply, I was very busy. It seems that it solves
the crash! What I did is:

1. Compile and install zsh 5.2.
2. Check that the crash is still reproducible, and it is.
3. Apply this patch.
4. Recompile and reinstall zsh.
5. Test whether the crash is reproducible, and I couldn't reproduce it.
