It does. I have checked that today. I'm working with that vim version
since several hours and I didn't see any problem.

-b works.

What disturbs me is, that /bin/vi is not the same as /usr/bin/vim.
I would prefer only one binary with typical vim behaviour and a
symlink named vi. Those who are bothered by vim special features
are free to set compatible mode, IMHO.

Michael, I would like to ask you, to change that.

Any objections?
