For Vim 5,6,7 this works as expected and the _viminfo file is created in my $VIM root directory.
When I upgraded to Vim 8, now the _viminfo is being created in whatever directory I launched Vim from. I have been through the docs and do not see what might be causing it.
The text for the viminfo options for the "n" parameter appears to be unchanged between Vim 7 and Vim 8:
Other options you might want to use:
nname used for the viminfo file (must be the last option)
I have also tried shortening my set viminfo line and playing around.
Anyone have any ideas?
