This worked (i.e. directories are not automounted as a side effect
of completion).  But I couldn't get it to complete symlinks and
directories (my /nfs/ directory contains both).  Using:

    zstyle -e ':completion:*' file-patterns \
      '[[ $PREFIX == /nfs/[^/]# ]] && \
        { setopt noglob ; reply=(*(@,/)) ; setopt glob }'

Leads to:

~ % ls /nfs/<TAB>
_path_files:327: bad pattern: /nfs/*(@

Thanks, I had to get it from the archives
(Murphy's law: my zsh-users mbox bumps from 3406 to 3408...)
