Sorry for not mentioning that. I am running the gnome GUI on Linux. I
double-checked on a different machine to exclude the influence of the
breakindent patch that is also applied. It seems that it works differently
with Metacity WM than with the Xfce window manager (running the same program
locally is different from running it remotely); also, the machine with
Metacity is xinerama-doublehead, which may make some bugs in the WM code
show up. I will install a clean version here and try to determine if it is
really a vim bug.
