      Is there any way to work around it?

      Previously the 'extend' bug can override built-in functions,
      which can alter things at higher level.
      (see here: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/vim_dev/3d-hgadlqvQ )

      And for the autocmd messing plugin part, invent another event will do it, right?
      That may be a bit hackish, error-prone, complicate things unnecessary.
      Okay, guess that's not a good idea.
