} You have to use expand-or-complete-prefix instead of expand-or-complete 
} (or complete-word), like
} bindkey '^I' expand-or-complete-prefix
} setopt completeinword
} But then your first problem is back - there is no complete-prefix widget.

You can, however, roll your own (but not in 3.0.x):

  bash-complete () {
    emulate -L zsh
    if [[ $RBUFFER = (|[[:space:]\;\&\|\>]*) ]]
      zle complete-word         # Completing at end of word is not special
      setopt noautomenu         # Cannot menu-complete the prefix, sorry
      RBUFFER[1]=" $RBUFFER[1]" 
      zle complete-word                  
      if [[ $LBUFFER[-1] = $RBUFFER[1] ]]
	LBUFFER[-1]=''          # Suppress doubled slashes, for example
  zle -N bash-complete
  bindkey '\t' bash-complete

This could, I suppose, get added to the collection of bash-alike functions
that PWS has created.  It does appear to work with `setopt bashautolist'.
