      I've never had screen garbage before (vims 6.something and up, WinXP
      and Win7), which is why I tracked this one down to a reproducible test

      I'm not going to test older versions unless there is a specific
      request to do so.

      My test case works reliably for me; perhaps others can have a try and
      report their success/failure? I'm wondering if it's vim's drawing or
      Windows, and, which particular Windows perhaps...

      My test case also shows garbage if I use
      :set guifont=lucida_console
      instead of the highlight command. I'd guess it's not specific to the
      method of choosing the font.

      I don't have DejaVu Sans Mono, but Consolas does _not_ reproduce if I
      use it instead of Lucida Console in my test case.
