Description Sertaç Ö. Yıldız 2007-03-06 09:49:51 UTC
vim cannot handle files with a BOM with the default installed vimrc:

> if v:lang =~ "utf8$" || v:lang =~ "UTF-8$"
>   set fileencodings=utf-8,latin1
> endif

As 'encoding' above will be utf-8, the default setting of 'fileencodings' should
work fine.

Fedora 7 test bugs should be filed against "devel", not against test1/2/3. This
isn't obvious, I know. Moving this report so it isn't lost.

This is a bulk message -- I apologize if this was actually meant to be targeted
against a different release. If so, please fix or let me know. Thanks.

Comment 2 Karsten Hopp 2008-02-25 15:29:23 UTC
this should be fixed  in the nex rawhide release, try changing 
set fileencodings=utf-8,latin1
set fileencodings=ucs-bom,utf-8,latin1
