Package: vim-runtime
Version: 1:7.1.314-3+lenny2
Severity: minor

if I write in a tex-document:
\intertext{bla bla bla}

the text inside the Statement intertext is highlighted as a formular and there 
is no spell checking inside it. There are different possible solutions. A 
first workaround ist to create a file in ~/.vim/after/syntax/tex.vim with:

if !exists("tex_no_math")
	syn region texText	matchgroup=texStatement extend  contained 
start='\\\(\(inter\)\?text\|mbox\){' end='}'	containedin=@texMathZoneGroup 
contains=@texFoldGroup, at Spell 

which matches the statements \text,\intertext and \mbox.

The solution for this package is to add these 3 lines 
to /usr/share/vim/vim71/syntax/tex.vim.
