      Yes, as I have indicated above, autocommand with ft=sh gives me
      syntax highlighting.

      That's a good tip, thanks, but if I change
      au BufRead,BufNewFile {*.cfg,*.profile,*.log} set ft=sh
      " where syntax higlighting works
      " to
      au BufRead,BufNewFile {*.cfg,*.profile,*.log} set ft=bash

      I now _do not_ have highlighting

      regardless of the order in which
      let g:is_bash= 1
      comes in respect to the autocommand.

      So..... setting ft to 'sh' works, and that works for me.

      Why setting ft to 'bash' does not work is a mystery to this
      eternal vim noob, but what I have now is sufficient.
      thanks again
