Mike, please take another, closer look at the linked image. It's clear
that what is displayed is the initial text outputted by vim when started
without a file to open and that the display of this text obviously
broken. While the problem could have been worded differently to avoid
the confusion, the image makes the problem unambiguous.
It's most likely a problem with the TERM setting in use when vim was
started, as Larry asked to clarify. I think it's also possible that a
non-Cygwin version of vim was actually started under a Cygwin session.
Larry's suggestion to follow the problem reporting guidelines would
likely clarify this point as well.
BTW, if you didn't intend to comment on Larry's reply at all, you should
have replied to Daniel's message instead.
