I'm glad that helped, but it doesn't explain why user names were being
completed for "cd" in the first place.

However, the answer has to be that the CDABLE_VARS option is set:

     If the argument to a cd command (or an implied cd with the AUTO_CD
     option set) is not a directory, and does not begin with a slash,
     try to expand the expression as if it were preceded by a `~' (see
     *Note Filename Expansion::).

I never use that, so I didn't recognize/recall that it will attempt to
complete user home directory names.

You may want to consider making the context for that zstyle more specific,

	zstyle -a :completion::complete:cd::users ''

so that you can still get user names completed in other situations.
