Steps to reproduce

Run asdf. In help output a line is printed for the asdf env command:

asdf env <command> [executable]      Prints or runs an executable under a command environment

I would assume <command> is an arbitrary command. But from what I can tell needs to be a plugin name or a shim name? I'm also not sure how this differs from executing the shim directly.

The problems seem to stem from scm_prompt_info, as they don't appear when I'm using a theme that doesn't use it or when I'm not in a git repo.

The problems I'm seeing include unexpected line breaks in the middle of my prompt, early
