Hi Steve,
please have a look at this bug report (thanks, Dave):

----- Forwarded message from Dave Sherohman <[email protected]> -----

The behaviour of the { and } movement commands in elvis 2.2.0 is
inconsistent with that described in the 2.2.0 documentation, as well as
with previous versions (up to 2.1.4).  Specifically, while the documentation 
states that:

   count {
          count }
          These commands move backward or forward to the start of a
          paragraph. The start of a paragraph is defined to be the first
          blank line encountered after a non-blank line; or a line which
          contains a troff paragraph command listed in the paragraphs
          option's value; or the start of a section as described below.
...
                   The start of a section is defined to be '{' character
          in column 1 of a line; or a troff section command listed in the
          value of the sections option.

and previous versions behaved in this manner, version 2.2.0 considers
any '{' character encountered on a line beginning with a non-whitespace
character to be the beginning of a section, even if the '{' is not in
column 1.

e.g.:
This { is considered to be a start-of-section.
 This { is not.

----- End forwarded message -----

I can reproduce it with almost-2.2.1, too.

Georg
