If you suspect further filetype settings are interfering, it's easy enough to figure out where it's being set:
:verbose set filetype?
This should tell you what the current filetype is and in which script it was set.
Vim by default includes this to detect the "text" filetype:
au BufNewFile,BufRead *.txt,*.text setf text
What file extension is your text file? Do you have any filetype detection rules to make Vim detect it as such?
