thanks for the info. It looks like you have found something that is installed
by "automagic". Not being a fan of vi I don't have it installed and that vim
file is not installed here. We may need to put it under useflag control.
I think we may adopt your patch until someone more knowledgeable in vim
tell us that's the wrong way of doing things.
