         ^ core dump on you a lot

(yes, i know zsh can do multiline editing; this was one of the few reasons
i almost converted from tcsh to zsh. i hacked $rprompt into tcsh so the
other reason was moot :). when i looked at zsh last it still coredumped
more frequently than i prefer in a shell. tcsh might be krusty, but
it's generally more stable and less bloated than the other popular
featureful shells (bash & zsh))
