"zmodload complist" does not work for example (it says it cannot find
the module).

  phil@ceramic:~% zmodload complist
  zsh: failed to load module: complist
  zsh: exit 1
  phil@ceramic:~% zmodload /usr/lib/zsh/3.1.9-dev-6/zsh/complist.so 
  zsh: invalid module name `/usr/lib/zsh/3.1.9-dev-6/zsh/complist.so'
  zsh: exit 1
  phil@ceramic:~% strings =zsh | grep /usr/lib

I notice that in the previous zsh version, there were some .so files
in both /usr/lib/zsh/3.1.6-dev-21 and /usr/lib/zsh/3.1.6-dev-21/zsh but
the new zsh only has .so files in /usr/lib/zsh/3.1.9-dev-6.

My point was why was zsh 3.1.9-dev-6 was introduced into
potato-proposed-updates while the previous version was 3.1.6-dev-21 ?

We freeze potato for 3 months and get a working system, and as soon as
it is released we add some packages that break it along with the
security fixes (proposed-updates).

I've opened a bug against zsh for the aforementioned behavior.
