thanks, I ended doing it like this:

zle-line-init(){
    [[ -n $__precmd_buffer ]] && {
        BUFFER=$__precmd_buffer
        CURSOR=$__precmd_cursor
    }
}

and storing the current line and cursor position with:

set_precmd_buffer() {
    __precmd_buffer=$BUFFER
    __precmd_cursor=$CURSOR
}
zle -N set_precmd_buffer set_precmd_buffer
bindkey "^X^[e" set_precmd_buffer

best regards!
