The line you've changed is handling the case of unmaintained files
requested (-tu => unmaintained=1) without directories being requested
(no -td => dodirs='').  This is what the p4 add completion currently does,
but it probably does need to complete directories.  p4 add is the only case
where -tu is passed in.  So it probably doesn't make sense to test for
-z $dodirs there.

What I can't remember and can't test at the moment without a lot of
fiddling is whether that means the code in that function is supposed to
work by adding unmaintained files and directories in some other branch
-- but I doubt it because that seems to be the only branch explicitly
checking for unmaintained files.

So it might simply be a case (as well as changing the glob) of removing
the spurious "&& -z $dodirs" (which is true because of the way the
caller works but confusing) and modifying the following comment to say
we always complete directories and hence ignore the -td flag in that

Of course this isn't going to be smart enough to add only directories
that contain unmaintained files but that fits with other uses of
directory completion which give you the opportunity of completing files
rather than the assurance they're there.
