Running it in a 25x132 minty window gives the following error message.
E437: terminal capability "cm" required
Then vim loads but the screen is all messed up.
Loading vim directly in the same window works fine.
Since vim132 seems to not work and seems not be needed, might it be
reasonable to remove the dependency on tcsh? Anyone who really wants
to use it can install the prerequisites and debug it themselves.
Thanks for considering this.
