Is that really a bug?  The prefix is 'zl', and that's what you're
completing according to what the doctor ordered: ignore the suffix,
just complete what's left of the cursor.  It's intrinsically
incompatible with complete-in-word, if that's what you mean, but then
you will have to use the usual exapnd-or-complete to get that; there's
just no way of having both possibilities at once.  Or am I missing
something?  Do you want the suffix to be deleted, a real space
inserted before it...?
