Description of problem:
I cannot show you how to reproduce this problem.
I have some .hpp and .cpp files and in two of these files gvim
randomly deletes a line: the same one in each file. The lines bear
no relationship to one another. I think there is a bug in gvim 7.0s
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Edit various .hpp and .cpp files
2. Sooner or later gvim will delete a random line.
This is very aggravating.
I would switch back to gvim 6.4 but I don't know how to use yum to downgrade.
I have now changed to a new computer and so far the problem has not occurred,
although at the moment I'm not doing much C++ editing.
Also I'm now using Fedora Core 6 so perhaps that has a later version of Vim 7?
I think that was a temporary problem either in vim itself or in one of the
drawing libraries it relies on as I'm quite sure I would have gotten many
similar bugreports otherwise. Please repopen when you get that problem again
with a current version.
