Package: vim
Version: 6.1.048-1
Severity: normal
The following file (uuencoded) displays very badly.
It has two characters whose codes are 351 (they are French accented "e"),
but those characters mess up the display of the entire remainder of
the line (it disappears).

The file looks like this when catted:
University, 3600 University St., Montr
for the receipt of applications and letters of recommendation is November

but really contains these characters:
0000000   x   x   x   x   x   x   x   x   x   x   x   x   x   x   x   x
0000100   x   x   x  \n   U   n   i   v   e   r   s   i   t   y   ,
