Using vim scp://.... I open a remote file. cursorline is not shown until I save the file(:w). When I type :w and enter password, cursorline appears.If I type :set nocursorline it disappears but again when I type :w it appears.

When I edit file in remote machine cursorline is turned off and is not shown.

Why does it have such a behavior?
