THAT should not happen.  It looks like something killed the function
and returned you to the top-level prompt.  Here's what I get (starting
after identical preliminaries):

Hold down Meta and press X: x
Your keyboard or terminal does not recognize the Meta key.

Hold down Alt and press X: ^[x


You are using zsh in MULTIBYTE mode to support modern character sets (for
languages other than English).  To use the Meta or Alt keys, you probably
need to revert to single-byte mode with a command such as

    unsetopt MULTIBYTE

(then more questions follow)
