Ha!, there is some cheat here. Vim --version shows 
"VIM - Vi IMproved 6.3 (2004 June 7, compiled Jun 15 2005 18:22:27)"

there is nothing interesting in
# ls -l /usr/bin/vim*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1319128 2005-06-15 20:31 /usr/bin/vim
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1090476 2005-12-23 01:54 /usr/bin/vim.basic

So I know what is going on - I have binary file /usr/bin/vim, which doesn't
exist in new version of this package. Now we have vim.basic -> vim, and this
symlink is made by postint script. okii so I know almost everything. The only
question is: Why I had this "leftover" ? Is there anything wrong with
postinst script? or maybe there was some other reason for that?

Thanks for help Norbert.
