This is correct: the engine also started /playing for me/ with this setup and I 
had to exit before it figures out how to move. (-zp option is not in 0.8.0 for 
some reason, only in 0.7.x).

Now I'm not at all sure how to analyze games while connected to the FICS 
server, though.
Indeed, anayzing observed ICS games only seems to work in zippy mode, and then the engine also plays. Of course it is understandable that in order to analyze you would need an engine, and when in plain -ics mode, (i.e. not -zp), no engine will be loaded.

I guess what you would want is a mode where the engine does not play, but can be set analyzing the current position when you are observing or examining an ICS game. Such a mode is currently not supported. It does sound like a good idea to have one, though.
