You have been subscribed to a public bug:

(ps|grep foo;echo)
Signal 18 (CONT) caught by ps (procps-ng version 3.3.3).
ps:display.c:59: please report this bug

(ps;echo)  # works
(ps|grep foo) # works
(ps|grep foo;echo) # fails

This behaviour seems to be caused by zsh since it is not observable
using bash. Note too that this bug cannot be recreated on precise.

zsh configuration is stock "system configuration" (run zsh for first
time and select option (2) - system defaults).
