Once I figured out what the issue was, I've been able to duplicate it
fairly simply:

  mkdir tt
  cd tt
  vim yy
  ^Z
  cd ..
  fg
  [vim] :q
  [2]  - continued  vim yy
                        (pwd : ~/tmp/tt)
                                        (pwd now: ~/tmp)

Notice the stair stepping of the continuation messages.

Doing this same sequence with a Mac or Linux zsh leaves the three lines
left justified:

  mkdir tt
  cd tt
  vim somefile
  ^Z
  cd ..
  fg
  [vim] :q
  [2] - continued vim yy
  (pwd : ~/tmp/tt)


  (pwd now: ~/tmp)
