zsh 5.8

we have several Ansible repositories in different directories. I often have
to switch between them.

Unfortunately the tab completion for all the Ansible commands caches known
Hosts & Groups in the global variables _ansible_hosts &
_ansible_groups. For me the effect is that the wrong set of hosts & groups
is offered when I change to a different Ansible repo.

How to reproduce:

1. Have two or more Ansible repositories with different inventories
2. cd into /path/to/first_ansible_tree
3. Type `anssible <TAB>`, let tab completion cache hosts & groups
4. Hit <TAB> again to verify that the offered completions match expected
5. cd into /path/to/other_ansible_tree
6. Type `ansible <TAB><TAB>` and observe that the offered completions still
   come from the first_ansible_tree, not from other_ansible_tree

As a quick workaround I've modified the completion to also cache the
working directory where _ansible_hosts & _ansible_groups were created. If
the current working directory doesn't match the cached working directory,
both variables are unset & their values cached again. This seems to work.

The attached patch implements this. Feel free to use it however you want,
or to apply a totally different solution.


Kind regards,
