$ zsh -f
% mkdir xxx
% mv * x/<TAB>

When xxx/ is empty, the <TAB> does nothing.  Could it complete x/ to xxx/?

Using _complete_debug (on another example, xxx/f/ -> xxx/foo/ with
xxx/foo/ being empty) I see that xxx/foo/ _is_ getting matched against,
but I haven't been able to identify the point (in _path_files,
presumably) where it is checked that the directory is non-empty.

The difference happens at this line:

        +_path_files:463> compfiles -p tmp1 accex / ' ' '' fake '*'

when xxx/ is empty, this assigns nothing to tmp1 for x/, but when it
is non-empty this assigns xxx/foo to tmp1.

My guess is that this comes down to the cf_pats() function, but I
haven't traced through the C code in detail.
