line break disappears when editing previous line

Aijalon
I have some sort of line break problem going on.

Here's what happens:
--------------------

<Ins> I type a long line of text like this one which I want to later break into several lines. <Esc>

# I edit this line to add line breaks as follows:

I type a long line of text
like this one which I want to later
break into several lines.

Now, when I go back to line 1 to add onto the end of the line, by typing <A> <Space>, the next line gets merged back into the first, as if I had typed <shift>+<J>.

Is there any explanation for this?


Here is the output of vim --version:

That problem has been fixed at a later patch level.
