get _files to work/bug in subversion in completion

I would like to get zsh to provide me with file completion if the
_complete fails to find anything. According to


all I need to do is add _files to the end of my completion list.
Thus, I use

zstyle ':completion:*::::' completer _complete _ignored _files

but this doesn't seem to change anything. By analogy with the suggestion in


I try to define a _complete_first command

_complete_first() {
  _complete "$@"
  return 1
zstyle ':completion:*::::' completer _complete_first _files _ignored

to force _files to always run. This makes files appear alongside
arguments, but there no files appear in the situations where
completion fails.

In particular, if I do a

svn ci -F [tab]

to try to get a list of of possible files to use as my changelog, zsh
never completes anything. I think this is a bug...

In 1997 a group of programmers started writing a desktop environment
to fix a travesty they didn't create.  Their program promptly found
its way onto un*x systems everywhere. Today, still opposed by a
software monopolist, they survive as soldiers of fortune.  If you share
their vision, if you know you can help, and if you can connect to
internet, maybe you can join... the K-Team.
