Package: vim
Version: 1:6.2-532+4
Severity: normal

:help doesn't work after a recent update.  I tried switching to the new
vimrc.dpkg-dist without any good news.

I noticed the "set helpfile" bit was missing from the new vimrc file,
and that Debian no longer seems to use compressed files.


set helpfile=$VIMRUNTIME/doc/help.txt

into /etc/vim/vimrc seems to take care of the trouble.
