They do for a shell which uses readline for completion, because the behaviour (show the completions immediately, or beep and show them on the second tab) is defined there. AFIK, the completion system of zsh is more flexible (read: there are more things to consider) than with bash (which just uses what readline thinks about completion). For your case, the setting of the variables AUTO_LIST and LIST_AMBIGUOUS could apply here, and maybe you have to unset LIST_BEEP to (I'm not so deep into zsh that I could tell this, so you would have to go through the man page or ask this in the zsh mailing list). > Anyway, I have no > problem with that in rxvt or cmd - only in X. This suggest that different dot-files are sourced in the two cases. When I run bash (in my case) either from cmd or started by XWin, I also have differences in which dot-files are sourced, so this is the first place you might want to look.
