You are absolutely right.
There is no full VMS path control in Vim. If file is found in the path,
there is no check, exactly where have we found it. 
Vim is happy with the first entry. :-(
I'll add this to TODO list and it will be done in near future. This would be
a major improvement.
Thank you.

Subject: [Vim-vms] Using VMS Logicals
I have a VMS logical defined that encompasses several directories as shown
           = "XMIT_ROOT:[SRC.CLIENT]"
           = "XMIT_ROOT:[SRC.FTP]"
           = "XMIT_ROOT:[SRC.PGP]"
           = "XMIT_ROOT:[SRC.GLOBAL]"
I use this logical to edit files to save typing and so I don't have to
remember exactly where a file is located.  If I open a file with vim and
that file is not in the first mapped directory, when I save it, the file
gets saved into the first mapped directory.  If I use this logical with the
standard VMS TPU or LSE editor, the file gets saved in the correct
directory.  Is there a current setting that will correct this or if not,
could this be added to the things-to-add list.
For example: "vi xmit_src:ftp.c" which is in xmit_root:[src.ftp] will be
saved in xmit_root:[src] and not [.ftp]
Thanks for your effort in bringing this editor into the VMS world.
