The cygwin version of vim, when installed, works well. However, autoindentation is forced on the user by default. I've mailed the vim mailing list and asked about this. Vim's creator answered and said that autoindentation is disabled by default.

Why is autoindentation enabled by default in cygwin's vim?

It isn't. I don't know what's wrong on your machine but autoindent is not enabled by default in Cygwin vim. The Cygwin install is not different from the (non-GUI) vim installation on any other machine. I'm sorry but there's apparently something wrong on your machine.

I'm *very* sorry. Something was wrong and it didn't have anything to do with anyone else.

Do you have another version of vim installed as well? Perhaps a
native Windows version? Do you have another vimrc file which is
used by that version and which is accidentally opened by Cygwin
vim as well?

I copied the vimrc example file and set it as my vimrc. I then forgot all about it. When I fired up vim, forgetting that I copied the vimrc example and set it as my vimrc, I wondered why autoindentation was enabled. I *should've* wondered why the *example* vimrc had autoindentation enabled but that doesn't make sense since the vimrc file is just an example. And to ask why autoindentation is enabled in an example file is dumb. Besides, it is just an example.

All apologies for strting this useless noise and traffic.
