I can't reproduce that problem so I'm not sure.

When I wanted to do that myself, I added the insert style to
_all_matches but that change is only in zsh 4.1. So in 4.1, you can do:
  zstyle ':completion:all-matches:*' insert true

If you want to stick with 4.0, you could probably just take the
_all_matches patch from 16923 and put the modified _all_matches
somewhere early in your $fpath.

I also find it useful to set:
  zstyle ':completion:all-matches:*' old-matches true
so that if an existing list is displayed, perhaps from a different
completer, I can press ^Xx and it will insert all the matches from the
existing list.
