Well, (1) is taken care of in the modifications of the completion code 
that are soon to appear.

And I have to admit that I don't really understand your other
problem. If you want cdmatch to be called even if the cursor is before 
the '/', you should use `C[0,*/*]', the manual says that with `n[i,s]' 
anything up to the i'th occurrence of s is not part of the completion
string, so the cursor isn't in a place where something can be
completed. Also I don't have any trouble with your second
compctl-version (trouble in the sense of SEGV or something like that).

So, could you please tell me what you wanted to have completed after
the `cd S/M'? (I guess you want `cd Src/Modules' but that would also
require a change in cdmatch.) Maybe I will then understand which fix
you are suggesting for (2).
