Hi, all.

I found that filename completion of recent vi behaves differently from
what used to be.  I seems cross platform issue.

I assign filename completion character to NIL ^@ character (set
filec=^@) and enjoy vi filename completion for long time.  The most
recent vi does not allow it anymore.  Although ^@ is used by tty line
discipline as eol2 designator, it has been valid and useful for vi
filename completion.  Now it behaves as if eol even though $HOME/.exrc
holds set filec=^@.  Other assignment, say ^A, seems to work well.

I'm not certain it should be attributed a bug or not.  At very least
-current vi exposes difference from 1.5(.1).  Should I submit it to
PR as a bug?  Comment?
