Oh, of course. That makes sense. Thanks.

I was trying to find a way to call split-undo before completion without
binding tab to something that isn't named complete-word. This tends to
help for older parts of the shell like incremental history searches
that don't use their own keymap and I theorised that it might help on
the second problem mentioned by Jun. However, menuselect and listscroll
actually have their own keymaps so perhaps not.

Anyway with the help of your hint, perhaps this:
  zle -C undo-complete-word .complete-word _main_complete
  complete-word() {
    zle split-undo
    zle undo-complete-word
  zle -N complete-word

Or perhaps the same but with a custom name for the function that is
then aliased to complete-word with zle -A.

With that, split-undo is interfering with AUTO_MENU. The following patch
seems to sort that out. At least in my setup, it now seems to work.
