I too have very late stuff installed, and I do run thevery same installation
on both Win2K (more) and Win98SE (less now).

 I have no problems like yours when running vi (i.e. vim, as vi is a link to
vim). There is other minor nuicances though...

:!ls -l

 Doesn't handle LF's as it should. e.g, ls output is:

:!ls -l

E91: 'shell' option is empty
Hit ENTER or type command to continue

Hmm... Is that $SHELL ?
 I have a script, running from .profile, that examines the contents of
$SHELL and removes all of it if there is '' (DOS thing) in there
(leaving it there will cause startx to fail - Win98 specific problem).
