That's a different symptom than what other people has reported.
But, it could just be from a stale dump file.

If you haven't already done so, please remove your .zcompdump (or
whatever custom dump file you might be using) and re-generate it.

The best way to do this cleanly is to comment out running 'compinit' from
your .zsh* files, exit and start a fresh zsh, then run compinit (answer
yes if it complains about insecure dirs).  Check that .zcompdump is more
than 256 bytes (should be about 33k).  If it's too small, run
   compinit -d .zcompdump
Check .zcompdump again.  If it's still too small, try exiting and
re-starting the shell again and run compinit -d again.

Then you can uncommment running compinit from your .zsh* files
(you might need to add the '-i' option) and things should be good.

One caveat is that DOS style paths (eg: "C:/<tab>") do not seem to tab
complete right now.  It's a know problem that I'm trying to track down.
Let me know if there are other issues.
