Thanks for that insight. That also explains why I haven't found it on
my already upgraded systems: I've upgraded them already a while ago
and they saw at least one more zsh upgrade since then, so the symlink
came back on that occassion and I didn't notice that it vanished when
it happened initially.

Sounds like the right solution, yes. Will test it.

ilf: Thanks for the additional data, too.
