Upon opening a tab-separated file (.tsv), I get:

CSV Syntax:Invalid column pattern, using default pattern \%([^,]*,\|$\)


Reason
------

"This happens usually, because either the column pattern is invalid
or the syntax script cannot access the configuation variables setup 
by the filetype plugin, which is caused by having a 

:syntax on 

line before the 

:filetype plugin 

line in your .vimrc."

(from: https://github.com/chrisbra/csv.vim/issues/29)


Solution
--------

Move the code block


" {{{ Filetype plugin settings
" Enable plugin-provided filetype settings, but only if the ftplugin
" directory exists (which it won't on livecds, for example).
if isdirectory(expand("$VIMRUNTIME/ftplugin"))
  filetype plugin on

  " Uncomment the next line (or copy to your ~/.vimrc) for plugin-provided
  " indent settings. Some people don't like these, so we won't turn them on by
  " default.
  " filetype indent on
endif
" }}}


before the code block


" {{{ Syntax highlighting settings
" Switch syntax highlighting on, when the terminal has colors
" Also switch on highlighting the last used search pattern.
if &t_Co > 2 || has("gui_running")
  syntax on
  set hlsearch
endif
" }}}

in

/etc/vim/vimrc
