I ran zsh -f, put the cd compctl in and found the problem did not exist. 
I then added everything in my setup files a block at a time, checking
for the problem after each block so that I could try to determine where
the problem was being introduced.

I tracked the problem down to this line:

compctl -Tx 'C[0,*/*]' -f - 's[~]' -k users -S/ \
        - 'c[-1,-display]' -k hostnames -S':0 '

My first thought was that I had done something stupid when writing this
compctl but the troublesome part of it (the first line) was taken
directly from the Z Shell Guide (Edition 2.1.10, Chapter 18, Page 89 or
Edition 3.1.1, Chapter 19, Page 95)

There are a few thousand users at the university so I want this
completion to I attempted to find a better solution. My solution was
the following:

compctl -Tx 's[~] C[0,[^/]#]' -k users -S/

There may well be a problem with this though it seems to work and I
can't see any nasty suprises but I would strongly suggest that the
manual is changed so that nobody else has this problem. 

Note that the problem with cd ..[tab] beeping as opposed to completing
to cd ../ is still there.

PS Ignore my comment about the patch for the -Y option in my last
e-mail: when testing it I had forgotten that I was still running zsh
3.0.1 from an earlier test.
