You're quite welcome. It's such a pleasure to use programs which
suddenly change their behaviour on upgrades and go unfixed for weeks.

So why doesn't setting the foldmethod work? Typing :set foldmethod=marker
in the file works. Why doesn't it work when I set it in /etc/vim/vimrc? It
also doesn't work when I set it in ~/.vimrc. Is it being overridden by
something else later? If so, I can't find it.
