Well, the exact same _config_ for another user on the same box did not
have that effect.  However, playing around with directories, I do see


Then "cd <TAB><TAB>" shows the issue.  I've not tracked down the exact
combination of filename layout, but it seems to be connected to the
underscore.  Commenting out the matcher-list item removes the issue:

# zstyle ':completion:*' matcher-list 'r:|[._-]=* r:|=*'

I'm sorry that my diagnosis of this stuff is so poor.  I've avoided the
new completion stuff, and am having serious head-scratching moments
trying to figure out how to replicate some old compctl stuff.  Even
simple things, like:
 compctl -f -W ~/some/directory commandname

The FAQ still points to compctl usage.  This is not my week.

(aargh, I can no longer rely upon $_ as being usable. :^( )
