Ah, you're right.  The /usr/bin/vim binary you have is probably a
version of Vim 6.3 so it'll be looking for /usr/share/vim/vim63.  The
URL you posted in a previous email isn't working, but I'll give try a
stable -> etch upgrade in the next couple days and see if I can
reproduce your problem.

To get your setup in working order, you should be able to simply
"dpkg-divert --remove /usr/bin/vim" and re-install your vim binary
packages (vim, vim-gtk, vim-gnome, vim-full) to setup the alternatives.
