This similar to the confusion about the default matcher-list that was
discussed about a month ago in the "completion oddity" thread (starts
with zsh-users/17099 if you want to check the archives).

In this case, though, the default matcher-list does not include the
dot character, so you must have a zstyle that does.  Disable it for
this context and you should be able to get the behavior you want.
