Oh, I was quite able to discern the difference before -- and it works 
both ways (with 4wincmd and with wincmd _).
I've attached two files:

* put prblm21.tst in your home directory
* put prblm21 wherever you want
vim -u NORC -N prblm21
:so %

I've also attached a screen grab.

Also tried:
 * xterm, gnome-terminal
* sftp, ftp, ssh

So, there appears to be a mystery here...
