Package: vim-nox
Version: 2:7.4.335-1
Severity: normal

Steps to reproduce:

start vim
   # vim -u NONE -U NONE -N
enter some text
   i this is a test<ESC>
define a match
   :call matchadd("MoreMsg", "is")
and note that two occurrences are found.

Now press
   Ctrl-W s
   Ctrl-W v
to get a split window.

Bug: in the "old" window the match is no longer highlighted.
