Bug#680772: vim: default completion menu highlight colors unreadable (PmenuSel)

Source: vim
Version: 2:7.3.547-3
Severity: normal

Steps to reproduce:
1. Run 'vim -u NONE -U NONE -N' command
2. In interactive mode, type /usr/
3. Press Ctrl+O (capital o, not zero) Ctrl+F to start vim path
completing mode. As there are few paths, vim will ask you to choose one
from list.
4. Highlighted entry will be black on black bacground, and therefore

':hi PmenuSel' command will show:
ctermfg=0 ctermbg=0 guibg=DarkGrey

Clearly ctermfg should be different than ctermbg.

As a work around, user can put something like:
hi PmenuSel ctermfg=1
in vimrc file.

Best regards
