Hi, I [read here](https://zsh.sourceforge.io/FAQ/zshfaq06.html#l62) that bug reports should go to this address. If this is incorrect, please direct me elsewhere.

Tested using Zsh version 5.8

IssuePasting text into the terminal results in the current line between wiped and replaced with the copied contents duplicated.

Scenario:

- Let's say the current terminal line looks like this:
~/work ❯ this is the current line

- I copy the word "current" and paste at the end of the line (with a space).

- Instead of ending up with:
~/work ❯ this is the current line current

I end up with this instead:
~/work ❯ currentcurrent

Causes
I have so far figured out that the following two commands cause this issue:

- set -a
- set -o allexport

I have tried this on two separate Zsh installations, one using Ubuntu in Windows Terminal, the other on an Ubuntu OS terminal - both to same effect.

If any further information is needed, please let me know.

Regards,

Chris

Copy and paste how?  Are you using the terminal's copy-paste mechanism
or the zsh line editor?

Are you able to reproduce this starting from "zsh -f", or only after
loading your initialization?  The example prompt you showed would
indicate you are doing some setup.

This usually happens when the value of TERM environment variable is
incorrect. What do you get if you execute the following command?

    typeset -p TERM

In Windows Terminal and GNOME Terminal the correct output is this:

    export TERM=xterm-256color

If you are getting any other output, that's the problem.

I get the expected output: export TERM=xterm-256color
