Re: Avoid LDAP hit during completion

Thanks for the quick reply, Ryan.

My $fpath has the standard value pointing to /usr/share/zsh/site-functions /usr/share/zsh/4.1.1/functions

cd is not aliased or redefined in any way.

I should have been more clear about it. It doesn't just happen to cd, it happened to ls and any other commands that trigger file/dir completion. Just a few minutes ago, I noticed that it doesn't necessarily happen at the first time of completion.

My zsh is running on Mac OS X 10.3 and the LDAP directory service it's hitting is Active Directory.

Is there anything in your $fpath that might cause this? Is your 'cd' a function or alias of your own design? First try cd-ing after issuing 'zsh -f'. That should work. I don't know offhand why cd would make a call to LDAP as 'chown<TAB>' or 'ls -l' would.

For some reason, whenever I start a zsh shell, the first completion will trigger many many LDAP lookup.

% cd foo<TAB>

As soon as I hit TAB, the shell appears as frozen, but at the background, it's hitting the LDAP server of my company network. This will go one for a couple minutes, at least. tcpdump and top revealed that mystery to me.

Is there any workaround for this? I'd hate to use bash after years of using zsh.

Thanks for any help!
