Description Scott Sloan 2004-10-20 22:34:08 UTC
Description of problem:

Twice now today while working on documents in vim it has locked up on
me in insert mode.  This has only started happening since the Oct 20th
updates in which we removed the vim-common depend. I think that might
have broken something

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


How reproducible:

Most of the time. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  vi name_of_file
2.  go in insert mode
3.  sit idle for a while or mess with the file
4. press Esc key
Actual results:

Sits in insert mode

Expected results:

To go into command mode

vim-enhanced and vim-X11 still depend on vim-X11, the 
vim-minimal<->vim-common dependency has been removed Nov.13,2003. 
The Oct.20 change was to use versioned dependencies, nothing else 
If vim-6.3.030-2 worked, it has to be one of the updated libraries or 
a micompilation by the new gcc which caused the lockup. 
Do you have a reliable way to reproduce this lockup ? It's next to 
impossible to find and fix this bug without a testcase.

vim-enhanced and vim-X11 still depend on vim-common....

My bad, I miss read the Rawhide update report

Since I can't reproduce every time, I'll close it and re-open it when
I findout what's causing it.
