Re: vi startup problem

Well, not quite.  The Cygwin version of vim is, of course, compatible with
Cygwin.  You could have been missing one of the packages that vim require
(in this instance, looks like it was terminfo).  However, since your
cygcheck output shows all updated packages, it's not very informative in
diagnosing your original problem, so I guess we'll never know.
