Description Bill Crawford 2005-12-05 18:42:22 EST
Description of problem:
I typed ":argedit 2.C<RETURN>", and the next thing I see at the bottom of the
screen is ".C" [New File] ... and sure enough, after ":wq" I can see (with ls
-a) a file called .C

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

Expected results:
VIm should be creating a file 2.C

Additional info:
Happens whether or not the file exists already.
