What is your TERM env set to?

I tend to have mine set to either xterm or vt220, which lets the syntax
highlighting and coloring come through.  Does color-ls colorizes your ls

If vim doesn't fire up in colorized mode, I'll usually exit and try it
with (under bash):

$ TERM=xterm vim

That will set the term type to xterm for just that one command.

But my 'screen' command is aliased to start with vt220 as the default
term type:

alias screen='screen -T vt220'

which works fine for everything except when I try to run vim under sudo,
the highlighting works, but colors don't, so I do the TERM=xterm trick
above, which makes the colors show up again.
