      When I run vim 6.2, and type :set rtp, I see:

      runtimepath=~/.vim,/usr/local/bin/../share/vim/vim61/vimfiles,/usr/local/bin/../share/vim/vim61,/usr/local/bin/../share/vim/vim61/vimfiles/after,~/.vim/after

      After a bit of experimenting, it turns out that if I rename the
      /usr/local/share/vim/vim61 directory:

      [root@zaphod vim]# pwd
      /usr/local/share/vim
      [root@zaphod vim]# mv vim61/ vim61-this_is_a_hack
      [root@zaphod vim]# ls
      vim61-this_is_a_hack vim62

      then runtimepath is set correctly:

      runtimepath=~/.vim,/usr/local/share/vim/vimfiles,/usr/local/share/vim/vim62,/usr/local/share/vim/vimfiles/after,~/.vim/after

      What might be causing this and how can I remedy it?

      Thanks,

      Paul
