One workaround: set promptchars=$'\U1F427#'

It would be good to decide if the \U parsing in $prompt is the bug, or
it not getting parsed in promptchars. I'm leaning towards the former,
because it feels like some side-effect and unintentional. But without
understanding all the related code, it is impossible to know for sure.

Kind regards,
