Okay, my problem was just that I have a stupid
command_not_found_handler that tries to autoload and execute things,
and of course that is run in a subshell so no completions were added
in the parent shell. (eg, I forgot to rm .zcompdump).

I have a number of screenshots with . in the name and it causes these
completions to be added;

   .letter     .wav

.6.33.config  .log

.09.12.png  .12.png     .14460-2    .32.18.png  .45.png     .conf
.09.14.png  .12863-1    .16.58.png  .33.config  .49.11.png  .config

I guess you go for the first . to get stuff like .tar.gz? Tarballs
often have . in the name for version numbers so I have the same issue
in that directory;
