You're talking about old-fashioned completion when the shell comes up
raw (apart from GLOB_COMPLETE), without the completion system loaded,

We've been gradually picking up these Dash problems for some time now.
It was added to be able to emulate sh pattern matching better, which is
irrelevant and (as you've found) occasionally annoying in native mode.
I'm seriously wondering if the right fix for such issues in the future
isn't simply to give up on complete compatibility for sh-style patterns
but just document the issues --- there are things that zsh really isn't
equipped to do.
