zsh -f

% true << (

Note the shell is now at a PS2 prompt.  The only way to escape the PS2
prompt is to type a closing paren, at which point you're at


But then gethere() is waiting for a single line consisting of the C
string "(\n)" which it is not possible to enter.  The only way out is
to interrupt.

Brute-force patch for this is below, but it seems like we should be
able to catch it sooner?  This appears to arise only because zsh
accepts <<(command) as well as < <(command) (note spacing).

Same effect with:

% true <<$'\n'

but there doesn't seem to be any good way to prevent that, and bash
5.0.17 behaves the same in that case.
