I ran across thus too, but I didn't realize it was a bug or I'd have filed a 
bug report.  I "set runtimepath" manually in my .vimrc, which I've kept 
around at least since 6.3, and /usr/share/vim64 wasn't in there.  I added it 
and all was well.  Off to launchpad now to see if there's a bug report.
