Interestingly, in _main_complete:19 we see:

  setopt localoptions nullglob ...

And it seems to have been there for quite some time. Maybe we (ok, I)
got confused because in some places we use the foo(N) trick to turn a
normal string into a pattern to avoid having to explicitly test for
the existence of files searched.

But since cshnullglob overrides nullglob, we should probably unset
that in _main_complete, as Bart suggests...
