(retyped):

    # ll /etc/vimrc*
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1473 Nov 15 21:59 /etc/vimrc
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1473 Mar  9  2006 /etc/vimrc.rpmnew
    #

OK, so maybe it's not still doing it there.  But this one looks more
promising (I hope):

    # ll /etc/profile.d/krb*
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 218 Jan  9 15:03 /etc/profile.d/krb5.csh
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 218 Jan  9 15:03 /etc/profile.d/krb5.csh.rpmnew
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 229 Jan  9 15:03 /etc/profile.d/krb5.sh
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 229 Jan  9 15:03 /etc/profile.d/krb5.sh.rpmnew
    # diff /etc/profile.d/krb*.csh*
    # diff /etc/profile.d/krb*.sh*
    #
