Suppose I am in directory /aaa/bbb/ccc/ddd/eee and want to go up to directory
ccc and then down into another directory.  If I do:

cd ~[c<TAB>

it correctly completes to:

cd ~[ccc]

If I hit enter at this point I go to /aaa/bbb/ccc.  So far so good.  If I
try to start completion, like so:

cd ~[ccc]/<TAB>

zsh doesn't give me options for directories under ccc, it thinks '/' is
the command I'm trying to complete.  Is there a way to make this work?

I don't see anything wrong in your code and for me, it works as you
expect (zsh 5.4.2). Does "echo ~[ccc]" returns the right value?

Yes, "echo ~[ccc]" works correctly.  I'm using zsh 5.3 so maybe there is some
difference there.  Perhaps there is some difference in options/modules/etc.  If
I cut my .zshrc down to a minimum:

autoload -Uz compinit

zstyle ':completion:*' verbose yes
zstyle ':completion:*' menu select=2
zstyle ':completion:*:messages' format '%d'
zstyle ':completion:*' group-name ''
zstyle ':completion:*' squeeze-slashes true

zstyle ':completion:*:descriptions' format "%UCompleting %d:%u"
zstyle ':completion:*:warnings' format "No matches for: %d"

(with the above zsh_directory_name() too of course), plain ~[whatever] works
but ~[whatever]/ will not complete paths.  Do you have anything non-standard
in your completion?
