The bug also occurs if I do it this way.  However, if I try it on a
clean user account, I can't reproduce the bug.  

So, by moving files in ~/.vim/ out of the way one by one, I traced it
down to the file ~/.vim/syntax/perl.vim.  If I move that file away,
everything works fine, but if it exists, I reproduce the bug.  Weird
enough, it doesn't seem to matter what exactly is in the file:  even an
empty, 0-byte, ~/.vim/syntax/perl.vim causes the bug to manifest
