Hi,

Others in the IRC hadn't experienced this bug so I'm asking here.

In some cases, when I tab to open the menu everything is duplicated, see
below for example
[image: image.png]
I've found this happens when my .zshrc contains

> zstyle ':completion:*:matches' group 'yes'
> zstyle ':completion:*' group-name ''
> zstyle ":completion:*" list-dirs-first true
> autoload -U compinit && compinit
>
>
Best regards,
Morten

Just the group-name and list-dirs-first styles being empty string and true are needed to cause the problem.

with ''python foo'' _python makes its way to _normal, returns (seemingly true) then compsys calls _default to
complete -default- for some reason that i am unsure of.

as a workaround disabling list-dirs-first for python would prevent the duplicates from happening:
zstyle ':completion::complete:python<->#(.<->)#::*' list-dirs-first false

but even with that, compsys seems to still tries to complete -default-.

There are some interacting things going on here.

First, _python uses
#compdef -P python[0-9.]#

This means to first try completions for commands matching the pattern,
and then try completions for any other context that matches, which in
this case happens to be -default-.

This is handled by _dispatch, which (after discovering that "python3"
matches the pattern), sets _compskip=default to indicate that it
should not try the -default- context after all, and then calls
_python.

Unfortunately _python calls _normal which sets _compskip='' again.
_normal is expecting _compskip to have come from _main_complete, but
instead it clobbers the local in _dispatch, so when control eventually
returns there, _dispatch goes ahead with completing for -default-.

This would be invisible except that list-dirs-first causes the results
of these two different contexts to be placed in separate completion
groups, and then group-name prevents them from being mutually
de-duplicated.

The trouble here is that the completion invoked by _dispatch is
explicitly allowed to change _compskip to control the behavior of
_dispatch.  It just happens that any completion that relies on calling
_normal may do so incorrectly.

Now, as it happens there's an undocumented option of _normal to
prevent it from doing this, but using that option breaks the python3
completion because the -default- context is needed for the "script
argument".  So the fix appears to be to make _compskip local to
_python, which seems a bit icky because it doesn't help with any other
completions that may have it wrong.  Better suggestions?

Regarding the workaround, as far as I can see `zstyle
':completion::complete:python<->#(.<->)#::*' list-dirs-first false` doesn't
actually fix the problem.

`zstyle ':completion::complete:python3::*' list-dirs-first false` does
however, though obviously only for python3.

That's because the context being tested is actually
:completion::complete:python3:: which considered "shorter than" the
pattern above, so the :completion:* zstyle is chosen instead.  The
rules for deciding what's the "best match" for zstyle patterns are a
bit convoluted.  Leave off the final * and you can leave the
number-match for python version.

Either of these also works:

# Leave out one colon
zstyle ':completion::complete:python<->#(.<->)#:*' list-dirs-first false

# Leave out the word "complete"
zstyle ':completion:*:python<->#(.<->)#::*' list-dirs-first false

Hopefully it's not something on my end, but it looks as though none of the
following works ether

   - zstyle ':completion::complete:python<->#(.<->)#::' list-dirs-first
   false
   - zstyle ':completion::complete:python<->#(.<->)#:*' list-dirs-first
   false
   - zstyle ':completion:*:python<->#(.<->)#::*' list-dirs-first false
