Re: PATCH: problem accepting completion in menu selection

It's behaviour in the zsh/complist module, yes, but there are two things
it can do: show a list without selection (using the listscroll keymap),
or select from a list (using the menuselect keymap).  I haven't changed
the former: space and return still scroll there.  They were doing so in
selection, too, which they shouldn't.

I should, however, consistent with the previous patch, have made
accept-search stop the listing without doing anything else.  Then you

  bindkey -M listscroll '\r' accept-search

if you want Enter to exit the list instead of scrolling.
