Oh, damn! Sorry...my fault...

As a zsh-newbie I better describe what happens and what I want to
Suppose I am at my $HOME/tmp/. directory. Furthermore there is only
ONE additional directory called "TheLonelyOne" there. And I want to
to change into that directory. As a lazy person now I would type on
and want to get
then instead all worldwide reachable directories as a suggestion.
From my current point of knowledge I didn't neither know the correct
naming for that behaviour (otherwise I may have already found the
solution in the docs...) nor whether there are similiar conditions
with possible other commands, which lead to such "I suggest you now
everything worldwide possible"-behaviour of zsh (this by far no
complainment against zsh or any critism !!! :)
Or with lesser words: If I would have a name of my problem I may not
have that problem anymore... ;)
My compinit-related stuff (as far as I am able to identfy it...) is:
# Search path for the cd command
cdpath=(.. ~ ~/src ~/zsh)
setopt notify globdots nocorrect pushdtohome cdablevars autolist
setopt autocd recexact longlistjobs
setopt autoresume histignoredups pushdsilent noclobber
setopt autopushd pushdminus extendedglob rcquotes mailwarning
unsetopt bgnice autoparamslash
setopt nobeep multios monitor
### completion stuff
zstyle ':completion:*' verbose yes
zstyle ':completion:*:descriptions' format '%B%d%b'
zstyle ':completion:*:messages' format '%d'
zstyle ':completion:*:warnings' format 'No matches for: %d'
zstyle ':completion:*' group-name ''
xhost local:root 2>&1 > /dev/null
# The following lines were added by compinstall
zstyle :compinstall filename '/home/mccramer/.zshrc'
autoload -Uz compinit
# End of lines added by compinstall
