That would explain what at first glance looks surprising.

I create custom keymap from emac's:


Rather hard to test viins and vicmd? Might try with multibyte when I
spot this happening and repeating. And one session now had this. Doing
unsetopt multibyte stopped this, restoring the option didn't cause the
issue to come back.

It's 5.1.1, and I've tested rather identical setup in coincidence:


Proposed a possible fix but user didn't respond if it helped:

- bindkey -N zhcw main
+ bindkey -N zhcw emacs

Thanks, will sure get on that tomorrow. I also sometimes get crashes.
Terminal window closes. Any tips for generating coredumps on OS X? I'm
able to google that when will have time, but also wanted to disable
-O, and ./configure --help | grep -i opt didn't show any option.
