I'm sorry, but I can't reproduce this issue. Tried with uxterm on trusty
and my own .zshrc (which is based on the Grml zshrc). No crash at all.

  Zsh5 crashes when resizing window after startup

Status in zsh package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Steps to reproduce:
  1. Open terminal window
  2. Resize by grabbing corner etc, before typing commands

  1. It only happens *before* you type anything at the prompt (though commands have been run in zsh through zshrc (I have it use toilet/figlet to print stuff on startup (before the prompt appears)
  2. Once you typed have something it doesn't seem to occur, its happens consistently if you haven't though.
  3. This happens across multiple terminals: gnome-terminal, terminator, xterm, uxterm
  4. I saw a similar crash starting guake as well. On startup if I hit F12 to open it crashed. I have to do this multiple times before it stays open. 

  This is on a fresh install of 14.04. I have a lot of customization in
  my .zshrc. I haven't seen this on other machines with the same dot-
  files, or the same machine prior to a fresh hard drive/install.
