Package: vim
Version: 1:6.3-013+2
Severity: minor

According to the docs (starting.txt), the "exrc" option should make vim
check for 

- .vimrc 
- _vimrc
- .exrc
- _exrc

in the current directory, in that order, and sourcing the first file
found. But a _exrc file is ignored. -- The first three are fine.

Quoting the online help message from :help starting

   -  The user vimrc file(s):
                    "$HOME/.vimrc"      (for Unix and OS/2) (*)
                    "s:.vimrc"          (for Amiga) (*)
                    "home:.vimrc"       (for Amiga) (*)
                    "$VIM/.vimrc"       (for OS/2 and Amiga) (*)
                    "$HOME/_vimrc"      (for MS-DOS and Win32) (*)
                    "$VIM\_vimrc"       (for MS-DOS and Win32) (*)

Then Vim - on other platforms than MS-DOS and Win32 - is not expected to
read that file.

Bug closed.
