Finally managed it.  It seems that the _git wrapper has a function
__git_zsh_bash_func() which does "emulate -L ksh" and somehow that
breaks when calling into the functions, while sourcing the file under
sticky sh emulation (via "emulate sh -c") overrides that ksh context and
fixes this.

% zsh -f
ilmenite% emulate ksh
ilmenite% case "$foo" in +*) echo snert;; esac
zsh: bad pattern: +*

I have git- from HomeBrew on a Mac, and zsh 5.0.3 from MacPorts
(yeah, mixing those two isn't great, but not relevant here).  I used git
bisect to find the triggering commit in zsh, doing a
configure/make/make-install cycle with each, invoking that shell,
switching to a git repo dir and typing "git push origin <TAB>".

I didn't use "zsh -f" during that cycle, but for completeness:

    % zsh -f
    ilmenite% fpath=(/usr/local/share/zsh/site-functions $fpath)
    ilmenite% autoload compinit ; compinit
    ilmenite% cd ~/path/to/a/git/repo/
    ilmenite% git push origin 
    __git_complete_remote_or_refspec:33: bad pattern: +*

Without the fpath adjustment, I get the _git completion from zsh and
everything works fine.  It's only the git-supplied zsh completion
configuration which breaks until I force emulation mode for the .bash
