  Yes, quite right -- aterm and my console are silently using a non-UTF8
locale, masking the problem for them.  A glance at the source shows that
zsh is not wide-character aware.  Not only that, there's already a bug
open against zsh (#205651) describing the problem.
  I'm very sorry for the noise and disturbance.  Carry on, sir.
