    ZLS_COLORS and ZLS_COLOURS are bot set and working (AFAIK...) and
zsh/complist is loaded:

    $ zmodload 

    Hey, that's weird :((( I'm testing again completion and *all*
colorable files are colored *except* directories :( I mean, if I use
default completion (not my widget and function), directories are
colored, otherwise they aren't, that's the only difference :?

    OK, that's what I assumed from what I read in _setup,
_main_complete and others. BTW, my ZLS_COLORS parameter is:


    ZLS_COLOURS is exactly the same. If I change the color for the
'di' entry, the default completion shows directories with the
appropriate color, but my widget doesn't, it doesn't color them. The
same if I remove the 'di' entry: the default completion colors them
red, mine doesn't color at all. Known bug in my version?

    Thanks again Bart, you're so kind :)
