I'm still trying to determine from exact from version I had before the upgrade but I have confirmed the following:
1. vim-8.0.0600 works
2. vim-8.0.1035 is broken
3. vim -u NONE <file> or vim -u NORC <file> don't display the corruption.
4. Unsetting TERM environment variable doesn't display the corruption.

The corruption displays as an initial p instead real first character of the file e.g.
p Core settings
keyrate="fast"

instead of:
# Core settings
keyrate="fast"

Doesn't matter what the first char of the file is p is always displayed.

From reading the post in the vim forum I believe its meant to display the cursor but due to the emulation issue its not.
