comment Mailbox is always read-only in Mutt
What does ls -ld /var/mail show? If the group on that directory matches the group on your mailbox the mutt_dotlock command will actually need to be changed to belong to the vmail group.

comment OSX zsh - Why do binaries only execute with the full path?
Including . in your PATH is generally considered a very bad idea. That can lead to commands behaving very differently depending on the directory which you were in when you ran the command. It can also lead to mistakenly running malicious code that is in your current directory (such as a directory which you just unpacked from a download). Getting used to using the leading ./ is a much better way to go.

comment zsh fail to expand apt-get regex?
I prefer that the shell report problems to me rather than silently continuing on with an interpretation that may not match what I had intended, so I much prefer the zsh handling of that.

comment How do I customize zsh's vim mode?
RPROMPT2 should be set as well so that the status is displayed in continuation lines. Also, when using this you may want to do setopt transient_rprompt so that modes for previously accepted lines aren't displayed.

comment Vim highlighting stuck messed up for specific file
Check .vim/filetype.vim, and the contents of the ftdetect directory in ~/.vim and any plugins that you're using. Since the filetype isn't getting set that suggests that there may be an error. Perhaps try temporarily removing the previously mentioned files one at a time to try narrowing down where the problem is occurring.

Is it being detected as some other type of file? What do you get if you type :set ft?<enter>?

comment What is ..vimrc.un~ and which Vim component creates it why?
This is controlled by the undofile option, the second help section that I referenced. This is different than the swap files controlled by the -n option.
