I've stuck with this problem month ago...

$ cd /e/s/s/[tab]
No matches for: `directory'

while
$ cd /e/s/s[tab] -- note the missing '/' at the end works.

$ cd /etc/s/s/i[tab]
No matches for: `directory'

-- I got /etc/systemd/system/input.target.wants/ there.

It seems the problem is the ambiguousness of the 's'.


There are other oddities:

$ cd /u/s/e/s[tab]
No matches for: `directory'
$ ls /u/s/e/s[tab]
ekg2/session-en.txt        ekg2/session-pl.txt	epsg_csv/stateplane.csv    epsg_csv/supersession.csv

while there is /usr/share/ekg2/scripts directory...


$ ls /usr/src/l/drivers/n/ethernet/i[tab]
No matches for: `files' or `directory'
$ ls /usr/src/l/drivers/net/ethernet/i[tab] -- 'n' replaced with 'net'
directory
linux-4.4-4.4.14/drivers/net/ethernet/i825xx/  linux-4.4/drivers/net/ethernet/i825xx/         linux-5.9.6/drivers/net/ethernet/i825xx/

$ ls /usr/src/linux-5.9.6/drivers/net/e/i/e/e[tab]
No matches for: `files' or `directory'
e.g. /usr/src/linux-5.9.6/drivers/net/ethernet/ibm/ehea/ehea.h existing
there matches and should be presented.

Simple test:
$ mkdir -p  a/{b1,b2}/d/{e1,e2}/g
$ cd a/b/d/e/g[tab] == nothing
$ cd a/b1/d/e/g[tab] == e1/g e2/g


The problem was this single line:

zstyle ':completion:*:*:*:*' list-suffixes yes
