Try «umount ./m<TAB>».

Making it work for «umount m<TAB>» too shouldn't be too hard.

Are you sure you have completion enabled (run «autoload compinit;
compinit»)?  What's the output of «echo $OSTYPE» on your system?  I get
45 matches when I do «mount -o <TAB>» on linux.

The problems may well be specific to your setup, especially considering
you've only recently started using zsh.  If some functionality bothers
you, describe the problem and we can see about solving it.
