249999cfb485914fe6f8630b1f4079e1227a5097 is the first bad commit
commit 249999cfb485914fe6f8630b1f4079e1227a5097

    36025: Fix completion aftoer "foo=bar; setopt ".

    Done by catching a case that doesn't seem to be handled otherwise,
    so there's some hope it doesn't screw up too much.

With the above commit reverted, < <tab> completes files again, but so
does ; <tab>.
