If you use compinit in your .zshrc, then // in a path will be treated as
/*/ when doing filename completion.
Look for "squeeze-slashes" in the zshcompsys(1) manual.
If set to `true', sequences of slashes in filename paths
(for example in `foo//bar') will be treated as a single
slash. This is the usual behaviour of UNIX paths.
However, by default the file completion function behaves
as if there were a `*' between the slashes.
