      Hm. Don't have a windows machine to test with at the moment, care to
      do some debugging? What does "set enc? fenc? fencs?" print out if you
      put it in _vimrc? If you run that line manually? If you put the maps
      in _vimrc, what shows up for them in the output of the :map command?
      My wild guess is that the encoding when the vimrc is being sourced
      doesn't match the encoding you get once vim is started, and that's
      causing vim to map one set of byte sequences for <A-x> in vimrc and
      another set once vim has started. If I'm right, you might be able to
      fix it using either a "scriptencoding" in the vimrc (but probably
      not), or by setting "encoding" in your vimrc.
