interesting parallel problem I've been having that this just fixed. I
never get this behaviour normally from vim on the command line.

set editor = "vim -u .mutt/vimrc"
having previously had

set editor = "vim -N -u .mutt/vimrc"
and it has returned to normal. My normal .vimrc which it would've been

I've no real problem cos it's wokring, but there's definitely something odd
