This is the old .rc file, left behind by a dpkg artifact during the
upgrade. While future versions of ae will be able to remove this file, I
don't see Brian letting it into hamm, but as it is only useful in this
mode during an install, everything will work fine.

You used the -20 code with the -15 .rc file.

Try it again using:

ae -f /etc/ae/ae2vi.rc tst

and you will have better results. (It's not great, mind you, just better)
