Thanks for the suggestion. I should have thought of trying this myself,
but a long time ago I put a 'cygwin' terminfo entry on the Linux host and
after a while trying to get it to work without success I just settled on using
TERM=linux. The current 'cygwin' entry is substantially different from the
older one, so I thought this was going to work.
I've transferred a copy of the 'sygwin' terminfo entry from Cygwin to the
Linux host (infocmp ==> tic) and after 'export TERM=cygwin' tried a few
vim samples. This works no better or worse than TERM=vt100, even
after setting 'syntax' and 'filetype' manually to appropriate values (they
don't currently auto-set, here) I get no syntax highlighting. I'll continue
to investigate this further.
I've now also tried opening an xterm (tunneling X11 through ssh) and in
this case, with TERM=xterm, vim works well and properly as far as I can
tell at this point. So, this is a reasonable workaround for now and also
suggests that there isn't something drastically wrong with the vim setup.
Thanks again for the help.
