I think the only possible issue with just a break would be if we didn't
want to return immediately.  But I don't think that's an issue here:
zexit() can't do it's "ooh! you've got jobs" because it's way too late,
and the repeat over multiple ^D's is handled down here in ZLE anyway,
so it's in a position to know that's no-go as well.  So don't see why
your simple patch shouldn't work.
