There are 2 small "regressions" I have found so far:

typing kkkk no longer escapes from the
"Press ENTER or type command to continue" prompt

how to repeat:
% vim<enter>
(output from the ls command is printed and a
 "Press ENTER or type command to continue" prompt appears)
("-- More --" appears)
(nothing happens, "-- More --" is still there)

It seems that other keystrokes (than k) like j or l or <enter> work as
expected. Btw I just found that b also behaves as k.

I can no longer avoid the staircase effect using :c

how to repeat:
copy the following text with the mouse:


then execute:

% vim<enter>
(paste the copied text with the mouse:

This is what I used to avoid this in vim 6:
% vim<enter>

What happens with vim 7 is that the text appears to be fine after pasted
but after I type .<enter> I get the starcase effect.

The case seems to be that `autoindent' is now applied to text entered
via ":c". The workaround is to use ":c!" to toggle autoindent.

Testing can show the presence of bugs, but not their absence.
