If I'm following correctly, that prevents the internal completion
matching from removing what it thinks are non-matching entries from
the tag group.  That's why I'm a bit skeptical of unconditionally
passing -U, especially if the :gs change handles cases other than the
"state-leaking" (see previous response).

It's just running _complete_debug once with globcomplete off and again
with globcomplete on, and then diffing the trace files.  Plus some
idea of which deltas are meaningful.
