I remember having seen this then and when after I ^Zetted man. But I
can't reproduce neither the behaviour I remembered (without the bg)
nor the one you described (with bg) on Debian Lenny with either cat or
man. Can't reproduce it on Sid either.
Can you tell us, with which program you can reproduce this? And maybe
your .zshrc if you have one?

In my case pressing just enter already sufficed to get rid of the
issue, so it was never annoying enough that even thought about a bug
