Subject: [gentoo-user] Strange reaction of gvim to : in a normal mode
Date: Sun, 02 Nov 2014 12:52:22
1 I use gvim from xfce4 and sometimes get into a strange
2 situation when pressing : while being in a normal mode
3 leads not to the command line mode but instead highlights
4 the icon "Copy to clipboad".
6 Just now I have noted that in this situation I also cannot
7 see the version of my gvim via the Help menu (but saving via
8 the the "Save current file" icon usually works).
10 The output from the :version command (executed from a newly
11 started gvim) is as follows:

44 Any ideas how to fix it?
46 And whom to blame? (Except for myself, of course. :)
47 My first guess that something is wrong with xfce4 here.
