Description of problem:
When attempting to use the vim -rv switch, I get:
E305: No swap file found for LICENSE
which is what the -r switch should produce. So it looks like -rv is
being treated as the -r command switch.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Execute 'vim -rv file'
Actual Results: E305
Expected Results: Open the editor in reverse video mode.
-rv or -reverse is only supported with gvim. Check the output of
'vim --help' and 'gvim --help'
I still think there is a bug here.
Up until the most recent relese of vim, 'vim -rv' changed the syntax
color scheme to the dark background version. That's what my version
of vim 6.3p15 does.
With the new release, vim is interpreting '-rv' and other combinations
of -r. as '-r', which isn't correct.
This looks very much like intended behaviour to me. grep for -rv in the sources
and you'll see that it is used only in the X11 stuff. And I've looked through
the patches that have been applied between 6.3p15 and 6.3.046, there's nothing
which would cause the behaviour change you're describing.
