Description Tethys 2004-03-18 16:19:07 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624

Description of problem:
The :split command should split the screen into two halves, one
above the other. This has worked in vim for years. For example,
I have a RH7.2 box here with vim-common-5.8-7, and it works fine
there. However, with FC1, the command simply does nothing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. vi /tmp/foo
2. :split

Actual Results:  Nothing. vim carries on in a single window as if
nothing had happened.

Expected Results:  Screen split in two
