I've had it happen, but don't remember what system. FreeBSD, for example, makes a distinction between vi and vim, vim being in /usr/local if installed--one doesn't want to symlink, because in FreeBSD's case, /usr is not mounted if booted in single user mode. I wouldn't even consider it a bug. This way, users preferring the sparser vi can use it and those who prefer vim can make an alias in their .bash_profile. -- Scott Robbins PGP keyID EB3467D6 ( 1B48 077D 66F6 9DB0 FDC2 A409 FA54 EB34 67D6 ) gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys EB3467D6 Oz: Sometimes when I'm sitting in class...you know, I'm not thinking about class 'cause that would never happen...
