Bug#797640: vim: custom highlighting broken with upgrade to 2:7.4.826-1

Package: vim
Version: 2:7.4.826-1
Severity: normal


Since upgrading from 2:7.4.488-7 to 2:7.4.826-1 my custom highlighting
rules are no longer effective.

Here is the .vimrc.test that demonstrates the problem:

	set nocompatible
	syntax on
	hi Comment term=bold ctermfg=6 guifg=DarkCyan
	hi Identifier term=underline ctermfg=4 guifg=Blue
And the command is:

	vim --noplugin -i NONE -u ~/.vimrc.test ~/.vimrc.test

When "set nocompatible" is uncommented then the highlighting rules are
not effective. If commented they work. With 488-7 it makes no difference
(as expected).
