} Here is the contents of /etc/amd.conf:
Hm, OK. I was mostly interested in whether /net/<hostname> was a symlink
into the /.automount directory. That sort of thing used to be common
with the old SunOS automounter.

Indeed, I don't see anything obvious that would cause a problem.
} What automounter do you use, Bart?
I tested completion using RedHat autofs-3.1.4-4.
The way new completion handles the automounter is with some code in
_path_files that attempts to access the directory before completing
the files in it; the snippet looks like
E.g. when completing after /net/mithril/opt/b that line will first glob
/net/mithril/opt/.(N/) before the subsequent code tries to find matches
for b*. However, that code is in a loop -- it actually does, in turn,
If for some reason that's not sufficient to automount the filesystem,
the completion will fail.
I suggest you have a look at the debugging output you can generate with:
zsh% ls /net/mithril/opt/b<C-x ?>
(where <C-x ?> of course means to type ctrl-x and then question mark).
