the package vim-common includes a file that defines markdown's syntax

there is something wrong in this file. if i write:
and something else
then "and something else" is also highlighted like "Something". vim
not seem to get that the highlighted region ended at "***". this applies
for "*" and "**" as well but not for "_", "__"
and "___". I worked
around that by deleting the "skip" attribute in lines 91,93 and 95 of
the file. but this approach seems wrong too because now i cannot skip a
"*" with the "\" character. this is not really important for me but
guess there must be a way to properly define it. does anyone have any idea?
This looks like it was reported and fixed upstream:
You might try grabbing the updated markdown.vim from there
or the vim repo to test.
The changes were merged into the vim repo here:
