Back to basics I guess.  On a machine I had vim 7.3.003-1 on and without
any color configuration (or .vimrc or .vim), I edited my .bashrc file,
which came up without syntax highlighting.  Typing ":syntax on" turned
on the syntax highlighting.  If moving all your configuration files out
of the way and trying the simple test above doesn't work, then please
follow-up with the list using the problem reporting guidelines found
