It looks like it's already gone wrong by that point; s is an empty
string while it thinks the cursor is 2 characters in (which appears to
be correct from the original completion; zlemetaline should show "./x",
which I think it must since that's what's in tmp at this point).

So somehow the command line string has been emptied incorrectly.  I can
fix the symptom at this point but it doesn't look like the real bug.  It
would be good to find out where s is being set in get_comp_string().  In
this simple case it should have come from line 1356 (the token type
should be STRING), in which case maybe the clwords array contains
something funny or clwpos is incorrect (it should be 0 from line 1306 or
1262, I'm not quite sure what the difference is).
