Hi folks,

I have a very strange behaviour.

I have set:
   PS1="%{$fg_no_bold[$_usercolor]%}%m: %{$fg_bold[blue]%}?%(?.%{$fg_no_bold[green]%}.%{$fg_bold[red]%})%?%2(L. %{$fg_bold[blue]%}#%{$fg_bold[magenta]%}%L.) %{$fg_bold[blue]%}!%{$fg_bold[magenta]%}%h%1(j. %{$fg_bold[blue]%}j%{$fg_bold[magenta]%}%j.)%E
%{$fg_bold[blue]%}%60<..<%~%<<\${vcs_info_msg_0_}> %{$reset_color%}"

I want to have an eye on the part
'%{$fg_bold[blue]%}?%(?.%{$fg_no_bold[green]%}.%{$fg_bold[red]%})%?'.

When I execute "perl -e 'exit 2;'" several times, I get sometimes a 0
and sometimes a 2. (The same with "/bin/false" but there it doesn't seem
to be wrong that often.

Does anybody have an explanation for this behaviour?
