Package: vim-lesstif
Version: 1:6.4-007+1
Followup-For: Bug #280292

Actually this is not a bug in Vim package, it is misconfiguration on the
user's system. The problem can be fixed with appropriate record in
${HOME}/.Xresources file, for example:

Vim*fontList: -rfx-helvetica-medium-r-normal-*-12-*-*-*-p-*-koi8-r

("xfonts-bolkhov-koi8r-75dpi" package should be installed in this case).
Of course, any other Cyrillic font can be select insted of RFX.

In Vim ":help .Xdefaults" command lists other parameters, including
fonts, which can be set via the X resources. For reference, there is my
Vim related properties, which are suitable for Cyrillic environment with
ru_RU.KOI8-R locale:

Vim*useSchemes: all
Vim*sgiMode: true
Vim*useEnhancedFSB: true
Vim.background: white
Vim*tooltipForeground: black
Vim*tooltipBackground: bisque
Vim*fontList: -rfx-helvetica-medium-r-normal-*-12-*-*-*-p-*-koi8-r
Vim.menuFont: -rfx-helvetica-medium-r-normal-*-12-*-*-*-p-*-koi8-r
Vim.menuFontSet: -rfx-helvetica-medium-r-normal-*-12-*-*-*-p-*-koi8-r
Vim.tooltipFont: -rfx-helvetica-medium-r-normal-*-12-*-*-*-p-*-koi8-r
Vim.font: -rfx-courier-medium-r-normal-*-12-*-*-*-m-*-koi8-r
Vim.boldFont: -rfx-courier-bold-r-normal-*-12-*-*-*-m-*-koi8-r
Vim.italicFont: -rfx-courier-medium-o-normal-*-12-*-*-*-m-*-koi8-r
Vim.boldItalicFont: -rfx-courier-bold-o-normal-*-12-*-*-*-m-*-koi8-r
