zsh: CTRL+R doesn't search history. Why?

Title says it all.  Just did a fresh install of ZSH and I can't get it to search backwards in the history.  Is there a bindkey I need for this?  I'm using PuTTY to connect to an Arch box.

First, see if PuTTY is actually passing the ^R, by running "cat" and then pressing that button.

By default, zsh has emacs/readline keybindings, including a history search, which you can also set with: bindkey -e

print@deathstar> cat                                                                                                                              ~/gits
^R
print@deathstar> grep bindkey ~/.zshrc                                                                                                            ~/gits/cases
bindkey -v
bindkey "\e[1~" beginning-of-line
bindkey "\e[4~" end-of-line
bindkey "\e[5~" beginning-of-history
bindkey "\e[6~" end-of-history
bindkey "\e[3~" delete-char
bindkey "\e[2~" quoted-insert
bindkey "\e[5C" forward-word
bindkey "\eOc" emacs-forward-word
bindkey "\e[5D" backward-word
bindkey "\eOd" emacs-backward-word
bindkey "\e\e[C" forward-word
bindkey "\e\e[D" backward-word
bindkey "^H" backward-delete-word
bindkey "\e[8~" end-of-line
bindkey "\e[7~" beginning-of-line
bindkey "\eOH" beginning-of-line
bindkey "\eOF" end-of-line
bindkey "\e[H" beginning-of-line
bindkey "\e[F" end-of-line
bindkey '^i' expand-or-complete-prefix

When I change it to bindkey -e it works; however, I want to use the vi bindings.  Is it possible to use vi bindings and have history search?

Thanks,
P

Yes, it's possible, These are my keybindings:

bindkey -v
bindkey '\e[3~' delete-char
bindkey '^R' history-incremental-search-backward

(lambda ())
