I didn't check exactly which of your patches caused this problem, but
i'll reply here.

% zsh -f
% zle_highlight=( default:bg=blue )
[hit enter until you're at the bottom of the terminal]
% cat

Now the whole bottom line is just filled with blue, which it should
not be. Similar artifacts sometimes happen when the completion
continuation prompt is shown ("At Top: Hit space for more..."), and I
also noticed in some circumstances when I hit alt-m to start menu
selection, the selected entry is not showed highlighted until I move
it once or hit ^L, but I don't have a minimal reproducer for those
