I would love to work with Sebastian to merge the two efforts. z-sy-h has
an open ticket for that:

In the meantime, Matthew, Julien, maybe we should link fast-syntax-highlighting
from INSTALL.md or something?  I'm not afraid of competition ☺

There's X_ZSH_HIGHLIGHT_DIRS_BLACKLIST in master.  It hasn't been released yet.
Note that the X_ prefix means it's experimental (= enjoys limited forward
compat guarantees).  If you give it a spin do let us know how it goes.

Please continue the discussion on the (relevant) github issue tracker; this
list isn't a support forum for third-party modules.

Sounds like an OS-level problem of stat(2)/readdir(3) not returning.
