zsh autocompletion problem with multi-line prompt

Hello everyone!

I'm using zsh, with oh-my-zsh, on a CrunchBang machine (light-weight debian).
I have a prompt that spans 2 lines in zsh, and whenever I do some auto-completion, it deletes a line from the displayed history.
For example, befor the completion I have

└──> vim foobar
└──> vim .z

And after I have

└──> vim .zshrc

my prompt config looks like this:

So, any idea why it does that, and how to fix this?
