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?
