Description of problem:
A customer reported a regression in zsh-5.0.2-31.el7.x86_64 compared to zsh-5.0.2-28.el7.x86_64 around "chaselinks" option:
$ unsetopt chaselinks; cd /
$ setopt chaselinks; cd /
zsh: path expansion failed, using root directory
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always, see above with zsh-5.0.2-31.el7.x86_64
Patch 34 (zsh-5.0.2-CVE-2014-10072.patch) introduces the regression.
I was able to fix it by backporting some additional code.
Thank you for debugging it and providing the patch! It looks good to me.
