I guess that's because filetype plugins are now disabled by default, I
just had to reenable that here as well, quite a few things broke for me
because of that change.

Try adding:
filetype plugin on

to your vimrc.

Btw, a comment in my /etc/vim/vimrc still says that filetype plugins are
enabled by default. And as there's no vimrc.dpkg-foobar around, I guess
that comment is also still in the packaged file. Would be cool if that
could be fixedm if you keep the filetype plugins disabled. Might save
someone some time. It certainly took me quite a bit of pointless
debugging before I stopped trusting that comment and looked into
