Oh, I know… I remember that from CS101 all those years ago… I actually did group a few of them, but I had a few false positives and negatives (I think due to ~/.zcompdump not being deleted) so eventually I just went to the awfukkit stage of debugging. :-)

FWIW I have used
in my .zshrc for ages, and it has actually proven very helpful as far as parsing arrays, etc. I realize it's not the ideal solution but this is the first time that I know of that it has caused a problem.
Then again, my usage of zsh is so basic that I may not be attempting some of the things which would have otherwise caused problems.
Thanks again for your time. I can't tell you how many times I've googled something about ZSH only to find the answer from some online cache of this mailing list.
