Problem with zle completion listing function.

I have the following function set up as an ordinary zle widget, with zle
-N, and bound to ^D.  It's supposed to make sure that when I type ^D I
always get a freshly calculated list, so that I can list the contents of a
directory which appears with menu completion --- otherwise it will just
redraw the current menu list.  (Of course, what I *really* want is
something smarter: if a list is already displayed, assume I want it updated
based on what's currently on the command line, but I couldn't work out how
to do that.)

# This is supposed to work like delete-char-or-list, except that the
# list generated is always new.


zle delete-char-or-list

It's a hack, but it still doesn't work.  First, I only get the new list the
second time I type ^D.  More explicitly: suppose I am in the top-level zsh
directory with menucomplete set, and type `echo Co<TAB>'.  This will show
`Completion/'; a further TAB would show `Config/'.  Now I type '^D'.  The
first time, I just get the same list, only the second time do I get the
contents I want.  I'm sure I should be able to work out what's going on,
but it's not immediately obvious.

The real problem is when I type '^D' a third time: the shell then crashes.
This is obviously a real bug.  Here's the backtrace.  `*minfo.cur' is
0xffffffff, which is obviously not a good thing to dereference.
