This pipe unexpectedly fails:

```
$ setopt pipefail
$ { print -nr -- "x" || true } | eval 'print -rn --
"${(q+@)brish_stdin}"' ; echo $'\n'Returned
$?:"${(j.|.)pipestatus[@]}"
''
Returned 141:141|0
```

This is the simplest thing I have found that works:
```
$ ( ( print -nr -- "l" ) || true ) | eval 'print -rn --
"${(q+@)brish_stdin}"' ; echo $'\n'Returned
$?:"${(j.|.)pipestatus[@]}"
''
Returned 0:0|0
```

Even this fails:
```
$ ( { print -nr -- "l" } || true ) | eval 'print -rn --
"${(q+@)brish_stdin}"' ; echo $'\n'Returned
$?:"${(j.|.)pipestatus[@]}"
''
Returned 141:141|0
```

The behavior is nondeterministic on macOS, and it actually doesn't
usually fail at all!
```
$ for i in {1..100} ; { { print -nr -- "x" || true } | eval 'print -rn
-- "${(q+@)brish_stdin}"' ;echo $'\n'Returned
$?:"${(j.|.)pipestatus[@]}" }

BTW, there seems to be another weird thing going on; Adding two spaces
before `echo` breaks the whole loop both on Linux and macOS:

```
for i in {1..100} ; { { print -nr -- "x" || true } | eval 'print -rn
-- "${(q+@)brish_stdin}"' ;  echo $'\n'Returned
$?:"${(j.|.)pipestatus[@]}" }
