But if I select test (which means 'give me a testing package not a testing 
distribution') and the only test version available is a test version of vim 
that I want to try and everything else defaults to uninstall and I say next

wasn't paying attention and had no idea that setup would uninstall my entire 
system because I wanted to try one test version.

Hummmmm - sounds pretty nasty to me.
