I can reproduce this issue; it's caused by 59d85a2a05
(git-completion.bash: use $__git_cmd_idx in more places, 2021-04-22)
which is present in v2.32.

The problem is that __git_find_on_cmdline now relies on __git_cmd_idx,
which is not defined when you do __git_complete.

The solution is to add __git_cmd_idx=1 to __git_func_wrap.

zsh is also broken by the same change, and the fix is to do the same in
the _git service.

I've fixed this in git-completion's master branch [1].

You are welcome to trying the fix.
