One other possibility is to check your key bindings. I just noticed
that there are 'menu-complete' and 'menu-expand-or-complete' bindings.
$ bindkey | grep menu
If I first do:
$ bindkey '^I' menu-expand-or-complete
(^I is '<TAB>')
I get 'menu-complete' behavior regardless of the menucomplete setting.
Another (remote) possibility would be to check zstyle:
That shouldn't list anything in a clean install. Someone else can
correct me if I'm wrong, but some of the things you can set with styles
appear to involve menu completion.
