It was probably done that way because it matches the Emacs convention.

comment How to start a command in tmux + urxvt setup?
The -c option is the problem here: it just acts as a “pass through” to a shell (tmux’s configured default-shell)—this is usually only useful when tmux is configured as a user’s login shell (since other programs might assume the login shell knows how to handle args like -c shell_cmd_str). You probably want to use new-session instead of -c.

Are you sure you have not turned off utf8 for that window (despite having the global value be on)? I certainly see extra spaces when using your PROMPT value if I set utf8 off for the window. What does tmux show -w utf8 \; show -gw utf8 show in a window you are having problems in?

When looking for multibyte the prime suspects would be “fancy” shapes like arrows, triangles, accented characters, etc. If you output them to tmux when it has utf8 turned off, then its idea of the cursor position and the outer terminal’s idea of the cursor position will be different; zsh asks for the cursor position, so it is sensitive to this discrepancy (which shows up as extra spaces at the end of its prompt). You might want to edit your question to include your actual PROMPT/PS1 value.

Do you have multibyte characters in your prompt? Is the utf8 window option turned on for your tmux windows?
