Ah yes, I was missing zsh/complist (setting the list-colors style was loading it automatically perhaps?)

I've refined a bit the _show_ambiguity_end function with what I already had:

  local prefix=${${compstate[unambiguous]}[1,${compstate[unambiguous_cursor]}-1]:Q}
  if [ -n $prefix ]
    [ "$curtag" = "all-files" ] && prefix=${prefix##*/} 

By also unquoting and checking for the 'all-files' tag, I can correctly match completions for (path)/files and quoted arguments.

I don't think the complex recursive match is needed at all.
I couldn't find any case that would require that. Do you have an example?

By stripping the directory, It now also works correctly for ambiguous matches such as:

$ ls //x

as I initially wanted.

Ahhh, lovely!!
