Make quite sure what fpath compinit is using, i.e. the one you have
set is already in effect at that point. "functions -T compinit" before
running it will output debug.  It will also show if it's using a cached
dump file (value of $_comp_dumpfile), which you can then delete by hand
so it will recreate it --- that would add the autoload without checking

print -l ${^fpath}/_go(N)

will show you any _go in the fpath.
