Why would you use (S) (shortest possible match) with #% (match the
entire string)? It will obviously never have a useful effect other
than doing nothing.

That said, compgetmatch() does this, which is probably your problem
(it gives no real motivation for why it does this)
     * Search is anchored to the end of the string if we want to match
     * it all, or if we are matching at the end of the string and not
     * using substrings.
    if ((*flp & SUB_ALL) || ((*flp & SUB_END) && !(*flp & SUB_SUBSTR)))
	patflags &= ~PAT_NOANCH;
