Don't know how comfortable you are with compiling your own source but 
because mythzmserver can be complied standalone without needing MythTV 
or QT to be installed you could easily  compile a newer version that has 
support for ZM 1.32.3 and just replace your existing mythzmserver with 
the newly complied one.

You would  grab one of the releases from 
https://github.com/MythTV/mythtv/releases and unzip the source.

You would then change into the mythzmserver directory and do the 'make 
-f Makefile.standalone' and then copy the mythzmserver executable over 
your existing one. No need to compile the rest of MythTV it's not needed.
