Hm, I can't remember if this fixed my original problem of not being
able to complete after unzip test\[.zip, if it did, something seems to
have broken it again. I do still have it in my "zsh-unfixed" dir so I
think it didn't. I don't get any errors, but I also don't get any
completions. (I actually encountered it when completing zdelattr,
which for some reason also uses $~, ah, you added that for me ;).

Long story short, if it was never fixed, never mind, I just want to
know if I'm getting senile. :)
