Architecture: x86_64

        Filename completion in vi no longer works as expected because
        revision 1.2 of dist/nvi/ex/ex_argv.c changed the name of a variable
        in argv_exp2(), probably to avoid shadowing another variable with
        the same name in the same function, but one of the renamed variable's
        three occurrences was left unchanged. As a result the wrong pointer
        is now passed to strdup(3).

        Set vi's filec variable, e.g. with :set filec=<some character>.
        Type :e followed by the beginning of a filename, then the filec
        character; vi lists all of the files in its working directory
        (including non-matches, as if no filename prefix had been given).
