What's the setting of your HASH_LIST_ALL option?  Also, is .vim a file
or a directory?

I've forgotten the history of this, but if HASH_LIST_ALL is not set
then spell checking won't preload the command hash table, so it will
not find any command you haven't already executed.  A side effect of
this is that when AUTO_CD is set, then directories in $cdpath will be
used for corrections, so a directory with a name similar to that of a
command will be offered.

My guess is that oh-my-zsh has adopted some of the suggestions from
zsh-users over the past few months to delay command hashing in order
to get faster shell startup, with the side effect that correction has
begun misbehaving in some instances.
