How much flow is there? Maybe this is a case of too little flow for reliable valve operation.

Never heard a filter squeel. Is there a pressure reducer near by?

He probably means the valve is squeeling. It's going bad. Replace or repair it.

I haven't heard of a controller doing that for a particular zone, you can try moving that zone wire to a different port and see if it does it..
I've heard transformers making lots of noises when they are going out, but that's with everything not just one zone.

The controller squeals when that zone turns on? Or the drip zone is squealing? Can you isolate what exactly the squeal is coming from? How long does the squeal last?

If it's from the drip zone, and the squeal is lasting 15 seconds or so.. It's the water pushing the air out of the lines.
