There are lots of places in the code that say "bad pattern:", after
adding identifiers to all of them, I found it's this one in glob.c

    if (!q || errflag) {	/* if parsing failed */
	if (unset(BADPATTERN)) {
	    if (!nountok)
	    insertlinknode(list, node, ostr);
	errflag = 0;
        /* $a[[<tab> */
	zerr("bad pattern: %s", ostr);

around line 1730. The real weird thing is that this is triggered by
_lastcomp=( "${(@kv)compstate}" )
in _main_complete. Trying to just echo $compstate or variations
thereof fail in the same way. Now of course I'm curious why anything
is trying to match a pattern when accessing a variable. Breaking at
the print shows this backtrace, I realize I have no idea what any of
these functions are for.

I notice also that $a[[]<tab> doesn't produce an error, but then
leaves the [] in place which does produce an error when you run the
command since it's obviously broken syntax.
